Writer commends caregivers Trish Harper and Betty Judd

Shelia Wade writes:
I was reading Columbia Magazine and came upon the picture of Trish Harper and Betty Judd. I have known these two women for many years. They are both excellent caregivers and truly care about the people in their communities. I wasn't surprised to see their continued effort in educating their community about living wills. Their efforts will make a big difference in the life of their patients and those interested in making their wishes known about the healthcare they want provided to them. I want to commend these fine women for taking their time and providing this service to others. May God Bless you always. - Shelia Wade
