    I just recently heard of Effie's passing and I have to admit that I write this with tears in my eyes. Effie was truly an incredible lady and though her final years certainly brought her a few hurdles, she always had a ready smile whenever she and I chatted.
    I have truly missed her since coming over to Sandalwood, in fact I still smile and chuckle anytime I see similar figurines to the ones that she was forever ordering and asking me to help her open! I have stopped into Missionwood a few times since leaving and was happy to see Effie again on a couple of those occasions for a quick hug.
    I was lucky to have known her for my years at Missionwood and am sending hugs to your entire family.
