Gary Barg - Editor-in-chiefTruly EPIC Organization

 

More used to giving awards than receiving (although I am an official Duke of Paducah, but that’s a story for a different day), I was somewhat surprised when my local Mental Health Association announced my name as one of their annual EPIC award recipients. Since the organization means a heck of a lot to me and so many other family caregivers, I am grateful, surprised and honored.

Care Verses

Her Hands
by Janet Freeman-Daily

So many years ago
They cradled a squalling bundle
Smoothed its tuft of hair
Lent a fingertip to suck
Waved bye-bye at the school bus
Drove to ball games and music lessons
