I sent a meal to my three elderly aunts who are out-of-town. They live together and were experiencing a series of medical ailments between the three of them. They were so surprised and delighted with the meal delivery! They decided to save it for Sunday dinner because it was such a nice meal, and they went on and on about how much they enjoyed it. Thank you for helping me treat my aunts from a distance!
