Today was the ribbon cutting at the Aldersgate House for Ned. When Hank arrived to collect everybody this morning Ned met him at the door and said, "My day as FINALLY arrived!"
A caravan from Hometown traveled up to Orangeburg...Hank and Ned in his truck. Mother, Hank's mother and our angel Ann in mother's car. Ann was able to get mother to take an ativan to take the edge off and it worked beautifully. She came without complaint and seemed to enjoy herself. She even posed for a photo with Hank and Ned.
After the ribbon cutting, where people just made ALL over Ned and mother, we went across the street to see mother's rooms and the doctor and nurse at The Oaks. A reporter from the local newspaper even talked with us. Many folks are finding mother and Ned's story interesting. All in all she had a very good day. Legare was with us every step of the way so mother was less likely to show out.

Uncle Ned loved that Legare came to see his house.
