The Doe family and the Staff of St. Joseph’s Memory Care,

My sincere gratitude to each of you for the loving and professional care you provided to my Mother.


To the Doe family & Staff at Our Lady of the Meadows,

My brother and I wish to take this opportunity to thank you and your incredible staff for all that you did for our sister in the last six years that she lived in your care. Please find enclosed a copy of the eulogy that I wrote that expresses some of the deep feelings that my brother and I have as the result of knowing you all.

With deepest appreciation,



We are all so impressed with your homes. What a gift you are to Richford and to the people who reside with you. Sincerely, NV October 2015


To the owners and staff at Our Lady of the Meadows,

My Mother, MW, was a resident for almost 2 years. Sadly she died in February of pneumonia and complications. Through her time at Our Lady of the Meadows, we were pleased with the wonderful warm care she received. We were so thankful she was there when she could no longer live at home – it gave her family peace of mind. She was a special lady. Sincerely, HM January 2016


To the Staff,

We wish to express our deepest gratitude for the wonderful care you gave our Mother during her stay at your facility. She truly felt at home there and spoke often of how wonderful the girls were to her. A special thank you to SG who made us feel so welcome during Mom’s last days. We all felt your staff showed professionalism tempered with compassion which allowed us to rest easy while she resided with you. Again, thank you so very, very much from the depth of our hearts. From the family of EH. February 2016


To St. Joe’s staff,

I want to thank everyone for the care that my mother received for the time that she was there. I felt she was in a place that she was well cared for and happy. The staff were all fantastic with her. She was safe and happy. Thank you all so much. I only wish she could go back there. Thank you, SL & JR April 2016

Hi Loren, Steve and all the family,

I deeply appreciate the wonderful place you have to care for our loved ones. I thank God every day for your special care!! Sincerely, CP June 2016



You know I want to thank each and every one that took such good care of SB. She told me about a lot of things. She was so excited when she won the picture that the man painted. I hope you kept it. I know that’s the way she would of wanted it. She also mentioned the gentleman who came to the hospital for her when she had no other way of getting back. She liked to talk and told me nice things – all good. So… Thank you. June 2016

Just a little note to all the staff of Our Lady of the Meadows for the wonderful care of RP before and after his death. He is missed beyond words. We all loved him. You have such a beautiful place. I will always remember the great care he got from all.

SP & Family

Dear Doe Family and Staff,

I want to say a most grateful thanks to you all for the compassionate care my brother received for the year he was with you at “Our Lady”. Bruce has been a man of gentle courtesy, humor, and sense of fun in his earlier life. He has been a man of community, family, always willing to help and support – as a volunteer fireman, boy scout leader for decades, senior leader in Masonic circles for the State of Vermont.

I believe he knew he received loving care from kind and patient staff. Those behind the scenes, although not visible to me as Bruce’s visitor, obviously take pride in meeting “Our Lady’s” philosophy. Specifically, I think of the cleaning crew-excellent work all the time. And the cooks I met when I delivered 2 baskets of squash from Phineas Swan’s gardens – genuinely thankful as they prepared evening dinner in an organized and clean kitchen.

You all are on your toes all the time – and how appreciative I am. I could only manage the drive over the beautiful mountains 4 times during Bruce’s year but I left knowing he was in loving hands as he continues his journey.

With my sincere thanks.
