I’m definitely going to pick a few of these adorable residents to write to! Social distancing and keeping elderly loved ones safe is so important right now–but it has also been very emotionally draining. A few minutes out of my day is a small price to pay to make someone else’s day, and I’m sure this is going to do myself as much good as it’s going to do these ladies & gentlemen.
