The Surprise Carolers The Shock
This afternoon about 2 p.m., the tenants of Teamster Manor had a surprise come to their doors. We had a tenant who died earlier in the year and today her friends and family gave us a surprise of Christmas meal package. That was the surprise as well as a thank you from the former tenant’s familly and friends. The Christmas package consisted of a white meat turkey rosat, a can of corn and beans, and two cans of fruit cocktail, a ho-ho, two candy canes (cherry flavored), and a box of mashed potatoes. That was our Christmas surprise! WOW!
This evening, we had carolers come and sing us a few songs. It was beautiful! It really made my Christmas spirit pick me up. Also, I knew one of the carolers which made it more special
As I was talking to Nellie Mom about the Christmas surprise, she told me that one of the tenants had died in his sleep while he was at a friend’s house. My mouth dropped to the ground practically. A family this Christmas is going to be without a brother, an uncle, a son, and cousin. Just five days before Christmas! It is not fair!!! He was only 37 years old. The whole building is in shock.
