Lindy-Hop to the Altar
My favorite bedtime story was how my mom and dad met. She was from Warwick and he was a young Navy airman stationed on Gould Island She was serving coffee and donuts at the USO "Buddies" Club when he asked her to dance. They lindy-hopped until, breathless, they headed outside into the cool night air. She swears that, as he showed her photos of his parents and sister back home, she knew she'd just met her husband.
A Sweet Life in Rhode Island
When Dad got out of the Navy, they bought the house in Providence where they raised four kids, three dogs and a cat. The big yard has been the site of pirate battles, Easter egg hunts, sing-a-longs around bonfires and more than one flag football game. That house has survived 7 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren and the sadness of our father's passing last year.
Dealing with Change
Our jobs have spread us kids all over the East Coast. We visit when we can and help out with repairs, and now Mom tells bedtime stories to the great-grandchildren. But we're all worried about her being alone in that big house. She loves it and all the memories. She'd never leave her dog, Vanderbilt, to move to assisted living, but she really needs help with some of the daily tasks that are getting harder for her. How can we help her have a happy ending in her own home?
