Myrna Norman from her FaceBook account in January 2015
I noticed a gentleman wheeling a woman who seemed almost lying down in her chair.
Something drew me to her.
her husband said she hadn’t spoken in 6 months, and had recent physical changes.
He explained little about her – she had thought ESL for 30 years
and that she must be proud of her years of teaching,
We both had tears streaming down our faces,
she wiping mine and I was wiping hers.
She said ‘You bet I am”
and her speech was clear and of good volume.
The staff was just blown away.
I feel so fortunate to have had this experience with Julia.
