~We want to thank you for the delicious supper you had for the Resident/Family Christmas party.  Everything was decorated so nicely and we really enjoyed ourselves.  We were there for Betty Stebens-Lake and we had a wonderful time!  The staff did an excellent job!



~Thank you for the excellent, loving care my parents received in your facility. I’ve loved everyone there, and will truly miss the many friends we made. Dad is doing remarkably well. Please let his nurses know.

~Thank you for the Davenport Lutheran Home experience and all of the caring people that we encountered while we were there. I shed a few tears when I left there. You all did so much for my wife Jane while she was alive, and for me when I was a resident there. Jane and I will be buried together on the Arsenal Island when the time comes. My and my family’s love to you and nurses Tammie and Brandy. Our love to all of you!

~To the Davenport Lutheran Home Staff,

Thank you for all you did for our mother in providing her care.  She truly considered the Lutheran Home her “home”.  She always told me “If I have to be somewhere, I’m glad it’s here.  They are so good to me.”

Once again we are grateful for all you did.

Thank you,

-The Family of Louise Miller


~To the staff and friends of the Davenport Lutheran Home,

On behalf of our family, we all deeply appreciate the skilled, compassionate care that the staff gave my mother, Mary, during her 14 month stay at your facility. Turning the care of a loved one over to strangers is a difficult decision and you exceeded our expectations. We are so grateful that you were a part of her life. Also, please tell the Pastor thank you for the meaningful memorial service that brought closure for all of us.

Grace, Peace, and Love in Christ,

Linda Gray Sowner (Daughter of Mary Gray-former Davenport Lutheran Home Resident)




~Dear Friends of Davenport Lutheran Home,

It was meant to be that I came here to this facility.  I have appreciated all the care and love you give to us, your residents, each day.

Everyone from the top leader to the “pot” cleaners, to the kitchen staff, the therapy crew, the ones who volunteer for the great activities you provide–please accept my sincerest “Thank You.”

Thank you for allowing me to get to play the beautiful piano, and encouraging me when my “down days” were drowning me.

I thank God each day that this was my place to mend.  He always knows what is right.

You treat everyone with respect.  Being known by name and not a number makes us feel like a part of a family.

Family is what you have been to me.

Thank you for everything and for going out of your way for me.

Love in the Lord, always–

Joyce Butler
