~Further Shore “High Summer” News Briefs~

  • It is with sweet memories and fondness that Further Shore bids farewell toJudy Peterson. Judy served as a nurse at the Flagstaff Medical Center for many years and was an avid dog lover. An organ transplant and cancer survivor, she was our inaugural TLC Client, always presenting the most gracious, loving presence and an award winning smile. She passed on August 7th surrounded by her sister and several friends. Several of our FS practitioners offered gentle touch and comfort care to Judy over the years. We were all inspired by her courage and sense of purpose. It was my honor to serve as her advocate, and to call her friend. Her two canine friends, Molly and Maxine, have both found loving homes with Kiari’s family.
