This book is dedicated to all of the fiercely independent people who decide to stay in their own homes as they age - even after they have lost their support systems. My aunt Ruth Sher was such a person. In her day it was the fashion to write little poetic ditties and give them to friends and helpers.  Printed on the interleave pages are “age appropriate” excerpts from well known master poets. “She did not trust there would be more.”
