Puzzles to Remember
Yesterday I received a National Founders Award, the Mary Desha Medal for Youth, from the Daughters of the American Revolution for "Exemplary Service to Community, State, or Nation."
I want to thank the Daughters of the American Revolution for bestowing this great honor upon me. Even more than that, I want to thank the Daughters of the American Revolution for being there for me over the past 5 or 6 years.
I first was first contacted, at about age 14, to receive a local community service award for my work on behalf of Alzheimer’s patients. When I left that meeting, several members came over to me and told me that I am part of their family now and they will always be there to help me, and they have remained true to their words. The Daughters of the American Revolution have collected and supplied puzzles to my organization, PuzzlesToRemember, on several occasions. They have remained in contact, always offering their friendship and support.
I know am very fortunate to have the support of such wonderful people.
