I am really proud of Mom today.She got a letter in the mail yesterday to say she was chosen for an award by Community Care in Bowmanville.This goes every year to a volunteer who shows a unusually high level of commitment ,that fit mom perfectly .She kept doing Meals on Wheels despite dad being the way he was with Lou Gehrig's.She never could have done without the support of me and Marlene looked after dad while she went out and delivered meals.Gave Mom a pat on the back she really deserves,she works really hard. She gets this award a Volunteer appreciation lunch next Friday the 25th.

CONGRATULATIONS MOM!!! It doesn't surprise me that she has been recognized, Barry. She's a very special lady. Many women her age don't do anything and she is so active and always helping others. Congratulations to you and Marlene too for being there to help. Please give her a big hug for me!! :)

How nice that your Mom is getting the acknowledgement that she deserves.

And congratulations to you and Marlene for being the perfect backups for her.

Thank you everyone,Mom thinks it a real honor to get this.Apparently the reason she got was not what she told me,she found out it was she has been doing this for 30 years,that is a good reason,her friend she does this with also gets the same award.No matter what the reason,I am still very proud of all the work she had done over the years.
