The family expresses thanks to Pat Swafford who was primary caretaker and personal assistant to Aunt Gussie for many years, to Glenna Young who gave her time to take Gussie to buy groceries and any errands that were needed and to Debbie Young, her hairdresser who went the extra mile to meet her at the car and assist her into and out of her beauty shop on her weekly visits. And to any others that has shown love and care for her.
