# 13 Her Frony Needs A Make-Over It is dangerous to walk over!

Mrs Dowdell just celebrated her 86 birthday on May 19th. She was elated to have a parade of phone calls from her Church in honor of her birthday! Mrs Carmetta lives alone and has for over 20 years. Long ago,she buried her husband and son.She has a niece who lives in Virginia that she can go live with at any time but shy away. Her niece earnestly adores her Aunt. Mrs Dowdell contributed to her receiving a Law Degree. Every August,she travels to Canada to visit her two sisters (78 yrs & 77 yrs), brother(85 yrs) and Grandson. But due to the virus,Mrs Dowdell will not make the trip. She fractured her knee last August and refused to finish treatment in Canada.She misses things like events for Seniors,fashion shows (She loves modeling) and going to Church. We need to pay more attention to washing our hands and face, wearing mask . Her front porch could use a make-over!!!
