The family expresses appreciation to her caregivers, Kara, Amy, Sherrie, Brenda, Madison, and Marilyn, who made it possible for her to remain in her home as long as possible. Thank you to the staff at Alpine Skilled Nursing Center and Northern Louisiana Medical Center for their competent compassionate care.
Although Meada loved gardening and flowers, the family suggest to those wanting to express their love and sympathy to consider, in lieu of flowers, a donation in her memory to Canaan Baptist Church or the Baptist Children’s Home.
