Thank you for the opportunity to service as a caregiver for Margaret. She loved watch old movies, and playing 500, I think it reminded her of her life as a young adult and times spent downtown with friends. She would request coffee first thing in the morning, sometimes requesting a second and third coffee before moving off her bed. More then once she would have something different on the television and I would stop in to check her and she looked at me and said "What's wrong with her?" When she had trouble staying awake during the day, she would direct that question toward herself and ask "What's wrong with me?" We spent a lot of time talking about our faith, our families, what we enjoyed doing in our free time, shared some trivia questions from the newspaper, shared opinions on political issues and things we believed to be right and wrong. Margaret I loved you dearly and will miss you. May God's mercy shine on you as you journey to him, Amen.
