Dear Awanui Home,
As Mum starts the next leg on her life's journey,we are able to reflect upon her last 10 years.

Her Alzheimers state protected her from the sadness of Dad's death but stole from her the opportunity to share in the growth of her grandchildren.It also meant she could not appreciate the extraordinary care and love she got from all at Awanui Home.

We were deeply moved by all the staff saying goodbye as we took her to the Private Hospital yesterday.
We are sad that she was not able to to end her days in your care.

To all of you at Awanui, our deep gratitude for treating Mum as one of your family. You provide a loving and caring environment and gave her Joy and Peace as her mental state declined----"Angels on Earth"

Kind Regards
Warwick and Marion.
