    Tell her from me that I am impressed and inspired.

    Guess this blows my desire to retire asap outta the water, huh? She NEVER wants to stop working as a nurse?? Remarkable.

    This is awesome!! The local or regional paper, the local/regional news would be also where I would look. Centers for Elder Affairs and/or Councils on aging have awards as well.
    This is outstanding!!
    And I would most definetely send it into the "Ellen" show!!
