Subject: Pauline’s 96th Birthday
We had the most amazing 96th birthday celebration for Pauline at The Bristal yesterday. My mom’s friends said it was like a wedding and they absolutely loved the way the staff was so attentive to my mom. Vic and I truly appreciate how much the staff helped us throughout the day to make it perfect for Pauline. She was smiling all day long!
Thanks from the bottom of my heart for your help getting Pauline adjusted to her new home. She truly loves it there and we know it is the perfect place for her. Joyce and Margaret are the perfect tablemates for her, and I can see they give as much joy back to her as she gives to them.
I just found out that one of Pauline’s longtime best friends, Nancy Flood, just moved into The Bristal in Woodcliff Lake, NJ. I’m working on getting them to video chat with each other so they can share their feelings about living in a new environment. I think my mom will be a good source of positivity for her Nancy who recently stopped driving and is having a tough time adjusting. I will let you know how that goes!
Thanks again for your support and concern for my mom. The staff is fantastic and my mom can’t stop raving about how kind and caring they are. I agree with her 100%!
