'twas a privilege to finally meet

by jl333 on May 11, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I got to finally meet the woman known as Marjie who I often send letters to, with ALS, but had not met. Today she needed assistance getting ready for her nieces bat mitzvah. It was such a pleasure to be in her presence. She taught me a thing or two about applying make-up. I think she enjoyed some 'gal time' since she's always around her husband and three boys. Her perseverance and determination are absolutely amazing. I only wished I could of been more help to her. She is, in my mind, a true inspiration.
