'If roses grow in heaven, Lord please pick a bunch for me, place them in my mother's arms and tell her they're from me. Tell her I love her and miss her, and when she turns to smile, place a kiss on her cheek and hold her for a while.' The family is very grateful to the caring and loving staff of the Nottingham Residential Health Care Facility and the Enriched Living facility.
