    I can not believe we have lost both of our mom’s so close together. Ivy was always such a wonderful friend to Mom and our family. Our hearts are broken for all of you.
    Ivy will be missed by many. Sending love and prayers.

    I had the privilege to take care of Ivy when she was at Medilodge. She was such a sweetheart. We used to talk. She used to close her eyes sometimes when she walked & i used to tell her open your eyes Mr. Magoo she would open her eyes & than we would laugh. My heart goes out to her family so sorry for your loss.
