    Mrs. Allene was one of my sweetest ladies at sentara I already miss her so much. She always had a smile on her face. Every time I mentioned her boys she lit up! Mrs. Allene was such a character she kept me laughing, she was always a joy to be around. I would always sneak in and tickle her feet and she would say “im gonna get you.” To her boys im very sorry for your loss. I will be thinking of you all.

    So Sorry to hear about you mom. I had a chance to meet her while taking her to the Hospital while she was at Currituck House. It was a pleasure to take care of such a sweet lady.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Although, I do not know your family personally, I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. May these words give you a new hope.
