"SHE WAS SO TOUCHED. May 9th was always a difficult day for Mom as this was the day that she lost her brother in the war. When Mom didn't come down for her meals, one of the LPNs grabbed a purple flower from the courtyard and headed to her apartment. Mom still has the flower next to his Purple Heart.
