I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff at Greenwood Lodge Care Home, for the wonderful care, attention and devotion that was given to my sister Linda Waplington, for the time she stayed in residence with you, until Linda so sadly passed away following a very short illness. I would also like to say a really big heartfelt thank you to the senior management, the staff and some of Linda's friends, from Greenwood Lodge, that did attend Linda's funeral. We were all all so overwhelmed by this, and will stay in our hearts forever. Linda left us some wonderful memories, which i am sure you all have too. I truly wish we all could of met under better circumstances, they say every cloud has a silver lining, well you truly were a silver lining for Linda. I feel the last few years, Linda felt safe and happy, smiling and showed who was boss, even laying down the law with her guns. Finally once again, thank you to all the management and staff, and please also accept my gratitude for your floral tribute.
