Dear Storytelling Friends,
If you have not yet heard, Roz seems to be nearing the end of this journey. Roz cannot hear the phone ringing beside her bed, and she cannot communicate on the computer. If someone calls when a relative or friend is visiting, they can help her with the phone, though she finds it frustrating trying to find the words she wants to say. It is best to send a card or visit, though she is sleeping a great deal. Her 93rd birthday is Aug 8th. She has terminal lung cancer that has spread to her spine and liver.
From my visits, I would say that as ever, Roz is courageous, willing to shrug or smile in the face of difficult times, and given to focusing on what is sweet.
Her address is
200 Leeder Hill Road
Hamden CT 06517
