Testimonials

Here are some testimonials from our beloved patient's families. 

Dear Mrs. Vertil,

Thank you for a most wonderful celebration of Mother's Day. Your efforts and planning were apparent as everyone so well remembered. 
The details of the flowers, the corsages for the ladies, the beautiful table settings, and the beautiful food have continued to be the topics of conversation even today.

I must also tell you how perfect the music was -so lively-infectious-happy and appropriate!

Mother was overwhelmed with the attention you gave her and the love from your heart, and I can't remember if she ever had a corsage before!!!!!!!

You really made us all feel very special when in fact you are the most special of all. 
 
The flowerbed was exactly as Daddy would have planted it, even the same  colors.  He was always the one for order, and neatness, and exactness.

He would have been so happy to be telling everyone just how to plant, and each day he would have measured the growth and watched the leaves form.

Watching the birds and squirrels was his favorite pastime. I am so very pleased and look forward to watching the blooms appear as the summer comes.
 
I have wanted to help in any way to create this outdoor heaven where the rest of the ladies and gents could use it and it is perfect.
The awning is lovely as was the furniture, and the grass is beautiful all the way to levy. This in itself has a story and a meaning for those of us from Port Arthur.

I used to play and walk and run on this levy with my good friends who lived in the neighborhood when I was in Jr. High.
In fact, it was the Peyton's nephew, Russell, in whose home we would visit, dance, and swim. I bought my first pair of levy jeans to wear to this home.

I remember the jeans had a zipper instead of the horrible buttons which I  could never work. The world is very small and surprising!!!!!!!
 
We send our love and our care to all of you who worked so hard to make this day the most special of all."

"Serenity home means everything to me & and my family. We know our mom Jewel English is being well cared for by the angels at this wonderful assisted living home.  

I feel at ease knowing that Mrs. Vertil has caring and loving women there taking care of all our loved ones. My mom means the world to me and I would not have her any other place. 

Thanks to everyone who takes care and gives my mom the love and attention that she needs. She is the best mom in the whole world and she would not be there at Serenity if she was unhappy. 

We know she loves it and that makes all of us sleep better at night knowing she is being loved by all the angels there at Serenity Home. 
Thanks to all of you for everything you do for my precious mom, Jewel Enlgish."

"Mrs. Vertil,
August first is Mother's 83rd Birthday. I cannot be there to celebrate until later in the month. May I ask a favor of you? I know that the Serenity staff never misses an opportunity to party! 

Please purchase a cake and ice-cream for mom's big day. Your schedule is beyond busy and I appreaciate your help. I will pray that mom will feel well enough to enjoy the extra TLC she'll receive on the 1st. 

Donna and I often talk about the peace of mind we have knowing that mother is loved and nurtured at Serenity Home. My oldest son, Peter, visited there for the first time in June. 

He was so impressed with the kindness of the staff. He said "Even the residents who don't know that they are well being cared for received the same attention as the ones who still think clearly." 

He was also envious of the megasized flat-screen TV and bright sunroom. Thank you for going above and beyond the standards of acceptable care and providing excellence. 

You and your staff reflect the love of Christ every day. I am forever grateful."
