  • I couldn’t help but think that Santa Claus had just entered my mother-in-law’s room at the nursing home.

    When Dr. Oliver walked through the doorway of the room he had a smile on his face and his eyes twinkled. My wife and I had just done our best to get her mother to smile. We were making our departure feeling frustrated and lost, as we so often do when we are unable to somehow manage to make her mother feel better.

  • Last year was very eventful for Sgt. Stephen Porter of the Quincy Police Department.
