Bless her heart. At 83 she is still taking care of others, she is a local legend, a helper to all who live there. Just a real decent human being quietly doing good daily. Thank you Cal for putting an additional spotlight on her.

I try to make CBS Sunday morning a must see, as I think its a wonderful show, so when I saw this I was so impressed at what I saw..this wonderful woman can teach us all a thing or two, or three...and Bill as always set a wonderful tone of his own, as always...i just love that show, although Ben Stein is starting to get to me...thanks Cal

I AGREE Ellen and Sunday Morning is the best news magazine show on TV period!

Bill Geist, though known for his light satire pieces is indeed a serious reporter. The best piece he ever did was on 9/11 and his neighbors in NJ who had lost loved ones, shown the week after.
