It’s been more than a decade and David and I continue visiting. Myron has passed and, these days, we visit mostly with former caregivers. Some need care themselves like Lisa (above) and Evelyn, my literary “Okie” friend, who now lives in a residential care home. My husband and I make the 100+ mile round trip to visit “Evelyn and the Ladies.”
These are the ladies that my husband and I enjoy visiting because as David says, “They bring history to life!”
We are grateful for their caregivers — a couple from the Philippines and a mother from Micronesia–who take good care of them, so we can still visit “Evelyn and the Ladies.”
Lisa, Myron, and Evelyn are just three of the many people we continue visiting for many reasons after my father died.
