Marcia's family wants to acknowledge the entire staff at Huntington Commons for their care, compassion, concern, and most of all the love they gave our mom. To every member of the staff, whether you provided personal care or handled the business side of mom's two and half year stay, we owe you a debt of gratitude. You provided our family with a great sense of security knowing that when we could not be by her side, she was loved and protected. You all became our extended family. THANK YOU!
