The ladies here are really sweet. To see them each day is a treat. I’ve only been coming a short while and everyday they have a bright smile. I thank you ladies for your time, you share to make me feel special and show you care. I’m going to miss seeing you ladies each day, but in my heart and prayers you all will stay.


Love, Cookie
