Mom had a major stroke in December 2014 after 3 months she fully recovered except for speech. She stayed at DLJ in Kelowna for 2 months until moving in with her daughter Monika in Kaslo.

She still enjoyed gardening, forever trimming the flowers. And especially watching the ladies last FIFA soccer matches held in Canada. Mom and I were glued to the TV for every game.

You could find mom most days, walking Schroeder Creek crescent and beach area with Mokie and Piko, as well as Leo the cat following behind. I want to personally thank the palliative nurses at the Victoria Hospital, they gave mom as well as me such wonderful care.

You truly are a special group of ladies. I was so blessed to have my mom living with me at Schroeder Creek for these last three months.
