    I recently lost my dear husband of 47 years. Maryann is my next door neighbor. The weeks leading up to his death from Lewy Body Dementia were filled with sadness and stress. Maryann understood what I was experiencing and gave both food for the body and the soul. She gave me and my children opportunities for laughter and sharing in an otherwise heartbreaking time in our lives. She continues to send me evening texts knowing how hard the hours after dark can be. Thanks Maryann, I love and appreciate all you have done.
