Just before the holidays I emailed Sophia Mas at Stewart-Marchman Act to ask about how I would be able to talk to my mom on Christmas:

Dear Sophia,

Thank you so much for all your help with my mom these last few weeks. We do sincerely appreciate it, and I hope you know that.

Is there anything special that we should know about the holiday schedule at Stewart Marchman ACT? Will the facility be staffed as usual? Do you do anything to celebrate with the residents at all?

Can you also please confirm Rodney‘s email address so that I can contact him easily when he returns from vacation? Or, if you know that Rodney does not regularly use email, can you let me know that so I will know to primarily try to connect with him by telephone instead?

Thank you very much,
Merry Christmas,

David Vincent Gagne
