I'm a member of a once-large Texas family that's dwindled over time to just two people: My Aunt Annie, now 100 years old, and me, her nephew, and I now live far from Azle, near Washington, DC. Over the past 10 years....more that 10, possibly...I managed to visit my Aunt somewhat often, as work schedules permitted, but not nearly frequently enough to attend to her needs. With her advanced age, those needs increased, and I felt helpless to find a solution. At about this time, Aunt Annie was blessed to have Good N.E.W.S. enter her life. The experienced and dedicated staff seemed to know exactly what to do, how to do it, and when to do it, and they volunteered their time unselfishly to ensure medical needs were attended to, living conditions were acceptable, and general needs were met. This enabled my Aunt Annie to remain living at home. She's a fiercely independent Texas lady, and wanted nothing more than to stay in her own home, and Good N.E.W.S. helped to make that happen. In later years, the level of her needs increased, but the volunteers dedication never wavered. Over time, I became aware countless instances of exceptional good deeds exceeding any expectations, continuing to provide a comfortable living situation for Aunt Annie and peace of mind for me. Terri and Joyce were involved in her life, and they made all the difference. Good N.E.W.S. is an amazing organization serving a critical need in the Azle community, and is deserving of all possible support. I simply can't put into words what a difference Good N.E.W.S., and their extraordinary team, made in the life of an amazing Texas lady, my Aunt Annie.
