    I just learned of Afrakoma’s passing. I am so saddened to hear this. Afrakoma cared for my mother for many years and she became like family to my sister and I. We are sorry We missed the calling hours as we would really love to see her family and share our feelings of what a wonderful, loving and kind person she was. She truly loved her children and family. Our hearts are with you.

    I am so saddened to hear of the passing of Afra. Her caring spirit, uplifting personality and compassion for all, especially the residents of A-Wing at D’Youville, positively affected each person she encountered. When my mom entered D’Youville, Afra was the first and one of the few staff members whose name my mom learned and never forgot. My deepest sympathy to Afra’s family and may she Rest In Peace.
