I am passionate about:
offering support and encouragement to adult children caring for aging parents, and demonstrating how laughter can be a caregiver's greatest survival tool.
A little known fact about me is:
that I've been known to dog-ear the pages of library books.

Carolyn, this was such a memorable episode. I agree, very thought-provoking. Pearl, thank you for mentioning my post, Planning Mom's Funeral... A bittersweet experience that brought us even closer together.
