What is your favorite part about volunteering?
Learning from the patients.

What is one of your favorite stories or memories from volunteering?
There is a patient here, he says very little, but there are some times when he reacts, and the most he’s ever said to me is “Howdy!” But if I take his picture from when he was in the Air Force and I show it to him, he laughs and laughs. He’s adorable.
