Our family is deeply grateful for the care Lupe gives to my 99-year-old mother Melinda. Each member of our family has walked into mom’s room to see her smiling as her eyes follow Lupe while she lovingly guides Mom through her daily routine. Lupe moves Mom’s fragile body like they are dancing—they love each other. Lupe has cared for our mother for 15 years, with the love of a daughter and the skill and dedication of the best professional caregiver. As Melinda enjoys her 100th year, all of us—her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren—recognize that our mother’s life and our own would not be possible without the dedication of Lupe. We are so pleased to honor her.
