“I remember June 28, 2008 like it was yesterday,” she said. “That was the day my life changed for good. I climbed three steps into a double-wide trailer that was parked on mound of gravel, and I was no more than 100 yards away from my new home.”
This was the start of Marilyn’s next chapter in life.
He took on the duty a year ago and spends three days a week in there, helping other residents find what they need.
For years, he worked as a candy packer in Aurora, and then later, helped out at a local food pantry. His latest job is keeping him on his toes.
The 69-year-old loves the meals, the people and the atmosphere at the assisted living community she has called home since July.
