Wonderful Feedback about PuzzlesToRemember

Puzzles to Remember

Today, I received an email from The Asbury Methodist Village Wilson Health Care Center (WHCC), where Nelda Drinkwater was a patient up until her death last week. I’m very happy that PuzzlesToRemember was able to give her even a few minutes of pleasure near the end of her life. Mrs. Drinkwater’s beautiful smile attests to what a wonderful person she must have been. Her daughter sent this message about how her mom felt about the puzzle.


“Mama greatly enjoyed working the box of chocolates puzzle, not only because of its heartwarming history but also because of its appealing subject matter, the high quality of the picture, and the large size of the puzzle pieces, which were easy to see and handle. It was just challenging enough to be stimulating as well as satisfying, and she hopes that other WHCC residents will enjoy piecing it together as much as she did.”
Sincerely, Nelda and Kathy (Nelda’s daughter)

what a wonderful tribute to Max' grandmother! Not only was it a special thing to do for her, but the puzzles have been enjoyed by so many nursing home patients. My aunt Nelda loved putting them together. I wish everyone could have known her. She was a very unique person who enriched every life she ever touched. Max could probably say the same about his grandmother.
