Who's Your One?

Submitted by Fran Clem

When I needed to have the support and presence of someone for a medical procedure, she was there. When I needed someone to talk to who listens with kindness and compassion, she is there. She provided transportation, conversation, support and offered to do it again if needed. I am grateful beyond words.
