Last year, July and August of 2007 were a blur of activity as I was just receiving the first of the printed booklets called 'Point to Communicate'.A very dear friend of mine called me late August with an urgent request. Her friend, Dolly, who had severe stroke and could not speak. My friend wanted to purchase a booklet to give to Dolly who would never speak again. I quickly drove over to her house to deliver the booklet.
A week later, my friend told me what a success the booklet was for Dolly. Soon, I began to hear this same phrase from other friends of Dolly.
In March, I went to see her. Dolly is highly motivated to communicate with anyone who will engage with her. I am so delighted to have spent time with her and call her my friend. She was so grateful to have the booklet. It changed her life by returning her communication skills which gave her control over her physical well being, showed her mental acumen, her compassion, and her wonderful sense of humor.
