Dear Rachel and Philip, I loved your Mother. She was always so nice to me. Her laugh was wonderful and she always laughed at my stories. She was so devoted to your Dad and to Lillian. She will be missed. Love and hugs to you both and your families. Linda Carter Kelsey

Condolences to your family on the loss of Natalie. She was my mother's (Natalie Kruger) closest friend at Huntcliff. My mom missed her terribly during their quarantine and was thrilled to be reunited with her just recently when the residents were allowed to resume having dinner together. I know her death is a terrible shock to my mom, especially since the people in charge at Huntcliff are not at liberty to offer any details of what happened to Natalie. My mother is not very good about reaching out, but I know she would want to express her deep sorrow and sympathy.
I met Natalie on a couple of occasions and she joined our extended family for dinner this past January when we were all visiting my mother in Atlanta. She was a lovely person and I'm so grateful for her friendship with my mom.
I hope she didn't suffer too much.
