Movie Night

The family of Gloria DeLuca would like to thank our family, friends and neighbors for all the love and support you provided to our mom over the last several months as she suffered with the ravaging Alzheimer’s disease. We couldn’t have cared for mom at home if it weren’t for our girls from Fort Hudson. To all the neighbors and police officers who helped us to keep our mom safe, thank you for your kindness. To those whose homes she went to for help, we are sorry for the inconvenience. Please know this horrific disease causes hallucinations, behaviors and fear that cause a person to do things they never would have done when they were well. Being at home and with her family was the most important thing in the world to mom and we truly appreciate everyone’s part in making this happen. Liza, John, Linda, Suanne, Terry and Harry
