Her Son

Christmas was coming and a volunteer called me to say he wanted to visit someone Christmas Day. He wasn’t going to be able to go home to see his mom and dad over Christmas and he thought it would be nice to spend the day with a lonely senior.  I asked him to visit an elderly lady that I knew would be alone.  The volunteer came by my office after Christmas to tell me that they had had such a wonderful visit.  He had spent most of Christmas Day with her.  “Just one thing, though.  She thought I was her son.  I couldn’t bear to tell her I wasn’t.  It just seemed to give her so much joy.  I hope that was okay.” If you would like to volunteer please contact Della at 254-772-8100 x 110.
