I can’t thank you enough for the way in which you cared for my friend Carl C. for the last four years. It was so important to me that Carl was able to spend his last years in such a caring environment with such an impeccably high standard of care, delivered with such warmth. He seemed very content and happy and expressed how kind you all were to him. Thank you all for the loving care you gave to Carl during his four years at Port...What a special place! Thank you to each and every one of you for the wonderful work you do. Tammi, Mary, Betty, Don and the entire Port Staff. —Yours gratefully, Sandy K.
