I have tried to call an elderly family member weekly during the pandemic. Its something that works well with my schedule, because I can call (using handsfree Bluetooth, of course) on my 20 minute drive home. Throughout this summer I got to know my great-Aunt Opal. After suffering polio as a child, her parents had extravagantly bought a bike for her rehab. For most of her life, she had enjoyed riding bikes. She sounded just like my grandma, with an extra Oklahoma twang. She was a very thoughtful and grateful person. She passed rather suddenly from breast cancer this fall.
