The family would like to thank Authoracare Collective (formerly known as Hospice of Greensboro) for walking with us on this journey.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Authoracare Collective, 2500 Summit Avenue, Greensboro, NC 27405 or to Carraway United Methodist Church, 1301 Sixteenth Street, Greensboro, NC 27405.
Most people did not realize that mom had been an Authoracare (Hospice) patient for the last eight months of her life as she requested the information be kept confidential. As her primary caregiver, I can never thank them enough for the compassion and care given not only to my mother, but to our entire family. They were always there to guide and provide. They are truly Angels on earth and I will be eternally grateful. Cindy Winslow Young
