We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the staff at St. Joseph Hospice for the wonderful care they showed our Mom, especially to Renee, RN; Angela, CNA; and Chaplin Sam who went above and beyond their call of duty. A special thank you to Gerald Russell who helped care for both Mom and Pop. Also, thanks to Lenora Gipson, who helped care for her sister for the past two years. Aunt Nora, without your love and willingness to care for Mom, it would not have been possible to keep her home with us. We are truly grateful for all that you gave to her and to us.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that a donation be made in Cookie’s memory to the LSUS Foundation, c/o The Jonathan Enders Memorial Scholarship Fund, One University Place, Shreveport, Louisiana 71115.
