    Relationship: Hyde Park senior Fri

    This wonderful lady was working the desk at Hyde Park Senior Center, when I returned to Cincinnati, after living in Florida for over 11 years. She made me feel at home. We became friends. My birthday is the end of this month. That lady never forgot my birthday by sending me a card. She will be missed by so many.
