    Goldie has a very special place in my heart. She was one of the first residents I met when I started working at Tamarisk. She was always there for me when I needed to talk or just to sit quietly with. She had a wonderful sense of humor, was very loved by many and will be greatly missed. May you have wonderful memories of Goldie.
