Thank you to The Good Samaritan Society of Howard Lake who were so kind and loving to our mother!  Thank you, also, to ProMedica for their hospice care and to all of those who brought her comfort with your calls, visits and meals, fixing her hair and making her laugh.  She loved you all!

    It’s with a heavy heart and many tears that I have found this place when I heard of Bev’s passing. I come here now knowing that my Queen B is at peace. I had the privilege of getting to know the Queen B at mealtimes. We shared many good times, many laughs, and some tears. One of my favorite memories of her is when the baby goats first visited…she excitedly cried Debbie come here, quick! Watch them with me! Oh Miss Bev how I miss you and your smiling face..forever in my heart. Fly high w the angels and know that you will always be in my heart.

    She will be greatly missed at Good Samaritan. She was great cheerful present and most of the time had a smile for all of us.
    Cooking for her was a blessing, she let me know if she didn’t like what I made her but most of the time she complemented me on her meals.
