My last week as Mrs. McGuill's caregiver, I had taken an extra day because someone had called in sick. She was surprised to see me that extra day. So as I was leaving my normal day I said to her.. "Ok... I'll see you next Thursday"! She says to me... "if not before"!! We both just laughed at that! That is my last memory of her, and it will always make me smile. I will remember her wit, her stories, her love of her family, and her love of the Red Sox. She was one bright shining lady! I will miss you greatly Mrs. McGuill. <3
