My heart goes out to the family during this difficult time. I so enjoyed getting to know Mrs Tippins during her time at the nursing home. Her precious smile made every day brighter. I loved to walk along side her as she made her way down the hall to get her exercise. She enjoyed visiting and always had the time to share a few thoughts. I know it was hard not being here during the pandemic but please know Mrs Tippins was loved by the staff and most especially her roommate, Nora. God bless you all!
