    I was a housekeeper at Mulberry Health for what seems like not long enough. Bev and Reid was a stop I always made sure I made. With my long days at work, they always made it so much better. I remember one time cleaning up her room and she had puzzle pieces sitting out. I had went to clean up the pieces and mixed them all together. She looked at me and goes “Jill! That took me an hour” we laughed it off. We always ended our conversation with big hugs and “I’ll see you guys tomorrow!!” “We will be here Jill” my heart aches for this family. Bev was an amazing woman and my heart is with you all during this difficult time. We were never supposed to say we had favorite residents. But her and Reid were top on my list, they reminded me so much of my grandpa and grandma. Love, Jillian Hooker
