Kermit from Pennsylvania

My name is Kermit and I myself am disabled. I took care of my mother-in-law, Donna, when my wife was working. It was an honor to do it. She always loved watching me try to make her lunch. There was a point in time that my wife had to quit work, Mom would fire everyone she hired. My wife would take her where ever she went - shopping or to get ice cream (she loved her banana split cups). Our dog always stayed by her side and kept her company. We took care of mom at home until her passing and I would do it all over again.
