Hi Lynney, it’s me .” Lynne knew her. How – it had been months – Eyes, voice, Lynney, hair, height? Can I massage massage, use moisture for hands, arms, shins, calves? Comb your hair? Yes, each time. Stories about past and present family. Perfect visit. Lynne stood after an hour & we left. Jennifer, good friend and neighbor called. “It’s been months, and now I have time to see Lynne. Can you give me some ideas.?” Jennifer brought her own moisturizer. Lynne listened for an hour and then stood. She said goodbye. Carol and I just watched. We all had a meaningful, caring time.
