It's been a great privilege the last 8 months to live at The Rose with Gleneva. She quickly became one of my favorite people here. She was very welcoming and helpful when I moved in. She always had a smile and a warm greeting whenever she saw me. She had a true servant's spirit as she was always helping someone when she saw the need. She was a lot of fun too! She always joined in activities and gave us all a reason to chuckle. Gleneva was a kind warm compassionate person and I'm sure I can speak for everyone here at The Rose when I say that she'll be greatly missed.
