She is gone now but my how I remember how much she loved and talked to her brown panda donated by the fans and the Kamloops Blazers' Booster Club.
The stuffed toys and pandas seem to take the place of dear pets left behind. They perch on dressers, hang on ribbons or ride along on wheelchairs keeping residents company.
Left on residents' beds, the pandas give the rooms a homey touch and bring smiles and comfort both to residents and their families. Truly, they are morale boosters!
On behalf of the Pine Grove Residents' Society, residents and staff, we would like to thank the hard-working Kamloops Blazers' Booster Club and the generous fans who put in so much thought when buying the pandas and stuffed toys.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we wish you all a healthy happy new year.
