It was my privilege to be able to care for Ardys. She was quite a girl!

All the memories I have with Ardys bring a smile to my face, oh the stories she'd share! We'd typically end up laughing so hard we feared leaving our chairs to go to the bathroom tehe! I love this woman, surely she is dancing in heaven ❤️
My heartfelt condolences to her family...
