Daisy, I am so sorry to hear about your mother… I have a lot of fond memories of her… She was practically a second mother to me…she drove us around when we were growing up… and all those mornings she drove us to school in Lexington! She was really good to us… and I dont think she knew how much I appreciated her…. I hope you are going to be ok…I know this is going to be hard for you…. You are on my mind and in my prayers…. Love, Jackie

I met you, Betty, when I came to Carillon Assisted Living as a volunteer. I thank you so much for allowing me to share my stories; allowing me to read my books with you as well as spend time with you even though we really didn’t know that much about each other. Your smile brightened my day and I will remember you always. God Bless you.
