Quiet acts of love and kindness don't demand our attention. They are like whispers in a traffic tunnel, getting drowned out by our everyday issues and an occasional nature disaster. But there is one deed that shouldn't go unnoticed: an act of kindness that shows compassion for one's neighbor that cannot be ignored.
Last month, a 10-year resident of the Blue River Services McGrain Super-vised Group Living Home in Corydon passed away after a short fight with cancer. She had been a consumer of Blue River Services for 26 years. She had no survivors and no arrangements had been made for her final days.
Thanks to the generosity and compassion of several people, this wonderful lady had a peaceful and loving passing.
Sincere thanks to the staff at Hosparus who so compassionately took care of her during the last several weeks at home. Thanks to Denbo Funeral Home in Marengo for taking care of the burial arrangements. And thanks to Starla Fullenwider for donating the grave site and stone.
Finally, sincere thanks and condolences to the staff and residents at McGrain Group Home who cared for and loved her these past 10 years and made sure all the arrangements were made for a peaceful passing and comfortable resting place.
