The Zapora Family would love to give thanks to the special people working in the Special Care Unit of Villa Crest. The caring and compassion they gave to Barbara over the last four years gave comfort to the Zapora Family and gave Barbara the dignity and quality of life she so richly deserved as she made her last journey to Heaven.
