Dear Mrs. Slatus,
I’m one of Ida’s granddaughters, and I want to thank you soooo much for being such a special friend to my Grandmother and to all who make Buckingham their home. My Grandma has been telling me about your kindness since that first time you called her in Atlanta. I can feel her lighting up when she talks about you. And she looks so forward to your Saturday study class.
When I visited everyone with Buckingham was so friendly. I was excited with all of the activities and how someone informs Grandma each time to attend them. Allison Beasley is amazing! I joined in with her aerobics class and she should make a video – I know it would be very popular.
Also, I want to thank you for offering to help me many years ago. I’m sure you wouldn’t remember this, but I do. You felt that I needed someone to talk to and you let me know that you were there for me. Well you were right and I didn’t have the courage to admit it, but it meant so MUCH to me that you cared…thus you also helped in this way.
Anyway, I just want to thank you for all that you do. It truly shows that you love what you do. You are a much needed inspiration!
