Last week, Lisa Cordova passed. Lisa was the client at Lyn's day hab who was wheelchair bound as a result of her Alzheimer's. Towards the end of her life, about all she could say was "Happy birthday." Lisa's family deeply cared for her and provided her with excellent care her entire life. She was active in the community and held a valued place in it.
Lisa and Lyn had known each other as a result of Special Olympics and church. They went to the same high school but were there at different times. Lisa was older than Lyn by 10 years.
I remember Lisa as a kind and happy woman. She was quick to smile and took genuine delight in others.
