Here's a lovely book review regarding The Last Night, A Caregivers Journey Through Transition and Beyond.

However, one of the defining moments occurred when I met Victoria Jamieson, author of Roller Girl, Texas Bluebonnet Award Luncheon!

How COOL is it that San Antonio's own "Alamo City Roller Girls" arrived on skates? I feel a program idea brewing...
