Careers

Dear Hannah Duston Family, I call you “our family” because that is exactly what you have become! In two weeks you all became extremely important to my husband Dick, my children and especially to me because you cared for the one person we all need and the one person I pledged to honor, love and support till God wanted him back. I am so happy we are going home, but sad that I won’t be seeing all of you each day. It is what I have been praying for to have Dick come home but forgive me, it is for me a little bittersweet. Thank you Hannah Duston for all of this and so much more. We ask God's blessing on you all, Mrs. Richard N.
