Many, many seniors are military veterans. And to them we give the highest honor on this special day.
Working here at The Willows, I like to think of all seniors as Life Veterans. And remember, life lasts a lifetime. From the moment we’re born all the way to our cherished elder years.
So on this Veteran’s Day, let me convey deepest gratitude to all of you. Because you are all veterans of life.
As a senior your contribution to the world is so important. You have given so much love; love to your family, your friends and your country.
I think giving love is the most special thing about a life lived well. You have so many chances to convey love to others. We don’t always do that perfectly. But if we’re lucky, life is long. And we have lots of chances to not only give love, but to go back and mend fences where we have stumbled. This is also part of being a Life Veteran.
In fact, maybe it is the most important part.
I lost both of my folks when I was quite young. I never had the chance to care for them when they became seniors. Maybe that is why I love The Willows so much. I see a bit of my Mom and Dad in each senior resident and visitor.
So whether you are a military veteran, a Life Veteran, or both. I would love to meet you. Here at The Willows we help our residents organize access to their military veterans benefits. And we feel that all Life Veterans really deserve the latter part of their lives to be surrounded by love, and new friends.
So we do what can to make every day filled with love and care. Call me at 485-1672. I look forward to hearing from you.
