She was a wonderful friend of my Mother and I was happy when I saw her phone number appear on my caller I.D. as I knew a learning experience was shining on my day. After the standard greetings the strong voice for which I received much advice in past informed me on our latest chat she had sold her home and would be moving into an assisted living community. She invited me to come on her moving day to spend the last few moments with her.
Her body was wearing down and she could no longer handle the steps in the three floor house but her mind was sharper than many much younger. She ignored her stiff joints and rose from the chair upon seeing her worn bathroom scale on the incorrect pile. I received this when we first got married and it works perfectly fine and is coming with me!
