We felt that we needed to let people know that she existed.
Without a family to mourn her, Elizabeth Love's caregivers from Hanover Nursing Center, from left, Martha Robbins, Tracie Vaughn and Sharayah Dockins, and Diana Davis, of Sentry Services, listen to Rev. Robert Leach at Love's graveside ceremony at Springdale Cemetery. Born in 1932, Love passed away with no known relatives and an unknown past. Her caregivers from the nursing center — where she spent the last 7 years of her life — said she always had a smile and a positive attitude. Dockins said Love didn't talk about the past but always looked forward to the day ahead. (©Ken Ritchie/The Madison Courier)
