From: Bertie Whiskin
Relation: Client's daughter

I was shocked to hear of Shelley’s passing. She was one of my Mum’s care aids. Shelley was here during an upsetting incident and stayed with us until the Paramedics arrived. She later called back to see if we were all right and asked if I wanted her to come back. I always felt that was above and beyond, but the offer was much appreciated. I’m sorry I couldn’t attend Shelley’s service, but I was there in spirit.
