President and Publisher, Lincoln Journal Star

As a child, I lived with my Grandmother (“Gram”) off and on for many years. She was my rock, and I was very fortunate she had a hand in helping raise me. She always took care of me, and I felt safe with her. In her final years, as Gram’s health declined, she had several stays at Tabitha for rehabilitation therapy. I felt I had a duty to give her what she gave me and was committed to making sure she was taken care of and felt safe, too. I would visit her often at Tabitha and leave comforted. Every time she was discharged home she would say, “Well, I don’t know what they’re going to do without me!”
