The family of June Williams wished to extend our sincere thanks to Ms. Lillian Green, aka Ms. Betty. June was blessed (and us) the day Ms. Betty walked into our home in April, 2023. She cared for June like she was family for 9 months. We could not be more thankful! A very gracious thank you to our church family at Eason for all the love, prayers and support that you gave all of us. We also would like to extend a special thanks to Amedisys Home Health Care for their Hospice care and support during this time.
