I’m going to miss Madge. I enjoyed taking care of her and spending time with her while she was on Restorative program at Westminster. She didn’t care too much to go to group at 4 pm and would rather us work together in her room. She was so sweet and I would rarely see her angry. I’m blessed as are the rest of Westminster staff who got to know Madge. We will miss her greatly.
