The ‘Flower lady’ stories inspiring

After reading about the “Heart of the 91-year-old man” (Bob) and “The Flower Lady,” Patricia Gallagher, recently in the Local, all I can say is: awesome! Their stories are powerful, beautiful and truly inspiring. I found these articles incredibly moving.

I work for the Chestnut Hill Meals on Wheels program, so I know just how much a visit of cheer and friendship can mean – and truly what a difference it can make in a person’s day. At CHMOW we know that it is important to nourish both the body and the soul. Trisha and Bob have given me some wonderful ideas to explore.

How great would it be to bring some “flower power” to the homebound and disabled individuals that we serve in our community!

I, too, intend to wear my “heart on my sleeve” and talk to my precious loved ones in this profound and personal way.

Thank you for the inspiration – Trisha, Claire and Bob – you are beautiful examples of sincere goodness and love and just what the world needs now!

Re: All in on Taney Dragons

Now interviewed on all the top TV shows and captured the heart and minds of people everywhere.

They were two wins away from the Little League title before being defeated. Yes, there has to be a winner and a loser. But think of the hundreds who never made it as far as they did. Three players who attend SCH, scholastic champs as well as champs on the diamond. And the first female to pitch a shutout in the Little League World Series.

All of us, parents, children, the whole Chetsnut Hill Community, look up to the Taney Dragons and stand proud.
