“It has been a ‘journey’, a delightful journey, as Mary Rives, MHA, MS, helped me recall and record the many inspirational, emotional, most memorable and loving memories of my life. She has been thoughtful, compassionate, and encouraging as I sometimes struggled for recall.

“Mary and her husband Keith Carlson, RN, BSN, have become treasured friends as we worked together these past months. A special thank you, Mary. You are forever in our hearts.” ~Bruce and Jacqulyn Rolstad
