Puzzles to Remember
With the help of a wonderful, caring woman, Gaby C., I have been able to distribute much needed puzzles to some facilities in Mexico. Gaby not only brings the puzzles to nursing facilities, she brings her family members along and spends time doing the puzzles with the patients. Here are some pictures of Gaby's family members doing puzzles with the patients at Casa de Abuelos (House of Grandparents) in Monterrey, Mexico:

Thank you, Gaby, for the wonderful thing you are doing, bringing pleasure to these individuals. Your children's smiling faces are a testament to what a great affect this is having on their own lives.
