A TIME TO REMEMBER

Our members at OPICA become our extended family during the day. We care for them and love the time we spend together. Since closing our doors in March, and continuing with Telehealth these wonderful friends have passed away. We experience a great sorrow each time we learn of one's passing.

Please accept our condolences on the loss of your loved ones. The memory of each one is a blessing. None of these passings were do to COVID-19. Some members names will apprear in next month's E-News.

We remember and honor:

Sidney S.
Vicky A. 
George S. 
Morey S. 
Dagmar M. 
Cruz R.
