Profile

I volunteered for St. Mathews Church and was a companion for the elderly for eleven years. I was a companion for Mrs. Bennie Baker for eight years. My visits always included a manicure and hand massage. She loved to watch TV, especially the news, so we would have conversations about current events. She loved Tom Brokaw and really believed that he could see her as she was watching him report the news. Another volunteer and I always gave her a birthday party, and she would brag to her sister in California about what good friends she had. She was a ball of fire with a memory that was unbelievable. The last thing she said to me was “Thank you Rose (she never called me Rosa), for everything you have ever done for me.” I was with her when she died. It’s been many years, and I still miss her.
