Juvy from Nevada

This is Janet, my neighbor and my daughter Cindy. This picture was taken a couple weeks ago, it was Janet's 82nd birthday and we took her out for lunch. Janet lives alone in the house and I help her go to her appointments, get groceries and whenever she needs help. Janet is very lively but she has difficulty in hearing and concerns me specially when she decides to take a walk in the neighborhood. I love her like a mother. She loves my daughter as well. She has no family close to her, everyone lives in different state. When her husband died two years ago she decided to stay in their house by herself until it's her time to go. Im just happy that I can give Janet company and the help she needs.
