Virginia was known to all as “Grandma” at the Sentara Nursing Center in Barco, North Carolina, and enjoyed the center of attention status she was given. The family would like to acknowledge the superb care she received there, especially the loving attention given by her grand-daughter, Gabrielle Caputo, who is employed at the nursing center.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
