Jan Vernon and her mother, Shirley King, know they must cherish their special bond not only on Mother's Day, but all days.
“She lost her mother when she was still a young mother. And, you know, I’m grateful to be a grandmother and still have my mother, and to have her be a great-grandmother to my three grandchildren,” Jan said.
Jan explained how there is one part of life that keeps them close.
“I guess the main thing is the love we share, as a family,” she said.
Both women live in the Nocatee area. Shirley is a resident at Starling at Nocatee Independent Living.

“We wanted her to be close to us,” Jan said.
The mom-daughter live just a few miles apart, and Jan and her family visit as often as they can.
“I absolutely love living at Starling. We have such wonderful friends and the staff is great,” Shirley said. “Everyone is very caring and the food is delicious. I just have very high marks for Starling.”
“We needed her to be in just the right place and within reach of family,” Jan said. “My mom has the comfort and care of being in a good community.”
