To the young gentleman who has started going to the retirement community where my Grandma is, I want to thank you for bringing in your beautiful Labrodoodle by to visit with her a couple times a week, as well as the other residents. I also wanted to thank you for spending extra time with her, and reading to her from her many poetry books she can no longer read. Her face sparkles when she tells me you got her to laugh with some Dorothy Parker, left her in thought with the words of Alice Walker, and delighted her when you gifted her with Shel Silverstein’s “Uncle Shelby’s A-B-Z Book” for Christmas. These past couple weeks since the holidays I’ve had to cut back a couple days from going to see her, and she is always and in good spirits, when she calls me to let me know your dog came and slept at her feet while you read to her and visit. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. She’ll have a lot to tell me over lunch this weekend I am sure. Mad respect and so thankful.
