“SHE WAS SO TOUCHED.  May 9th was always a difficult day for Mom as this was the day that she lost her brother in the war.  When Mom didn’t come down for her meals, the Concierge grabbed a purple flower from the courtyard and headed to her apartment. Mom still has the flower next to his Purple Heart.  It meant so much to her.”
