Heather (visiting Audrey at Kent Regency): Mother, do you want the headpiece of your wheel chair pushed back?
“No, I’ll, I’ll. This is comfortable.”
(Heather: Mother, why are you crying?)
“The tomcats. They came in on our line. When they came in, I cried right away. I was pretty close to them. I thought they were going to bite me. I was afraid of tomcats.”
(Heather: That must have been scary when you were a child. Mother, do you know why you are sad now?)
“I’m not sad. I’m happy when I think of all the things I remember –running in the field–running and kicking up in the air as high as I could.”
(Obviously, Audrey’s lack of her own mobility was what she longed for the most as she aged.)
