While we were blessed to have received excellent care from the staff at Whittier, we would like to give special thanks for the sincere kindness showed to our Mom, Betty, and to our family by Liz and her co-workers. These ladies and men are a true credit to the nursing profession and we wish them the best in all of their future endeavors.
