A sincere thank-you from Doris Williams

Regarding the recent loss of my mother, I wish to thank all of the LLCC family who sent cards or flowers, offered prayers and/or words of comfort and encouragement, attended the services, or maybe just thought about me and my family during this difficult time.  Your thoughtfulness did not go unnoticed and meant so much to me.  It is so nice to know that people you work with care about you in this way.  Thanks again.
