To all the staff at Sierra Oaks–Jen, Little Debbie, Star, Conner, Irina, Kris, Susan, Mindy, Amber, Rob, Erin, Michael, Kathy, Rackenzie, Kim, and apologies because I’m sure I’ve forgotten someone important! Thank you all for being so supportive during this most difficult time for our family. For four year you’ve watched over dad when we couldn’t, ensuring he was healthy and safe in the face of the most difficult time of his life. While he begrudgingly transitioned through the loss of our mom, Shirley, his own independence and his slowly declining health, you all remained professional, caring, and empathic. We know the extenuating circumstances of the Carr fire and subsequent evacuation of you resident put extra strain and stress on all of you. In the face of wondering if your families were safe and your homes were still standing, you all continued to power through and care for dad and all of your residents just as you would your own family. We appreciate all you did in allowing us to stay put during the evacuation so dad could pass at home. I will never forget how wonderful it was the first time he said “I want to go home.” And he meant home to Sierra Oaks. We will never forget how you all helped to make this difficult experience easier for us.
