grandmother these days. To me, she is the ultimate
caregiver. I often joke that she raised eight kidsóher

special people in her lifeónot only her patients, but other
friends and relatives as needed.

has now come for the rest of us to step in and start taking
care of her. I only hope we do as good a job as she
has done for all of us.
