    I went back to Granville house after my mother, Alice Humphries was transferred to Oxford Manor from Granville house and thanked her for her help with my mother. She loved Mrs. Dease and my Uncle Edward Elliott who was there did too. She cared for them and they knew it. She was an Angel on earth and now they are rejoicing together again.
