Lillian Monroe, Meals on Wheels month

At 87, Ms. Lillian Monroe radiates with a kind of calm inner light. She doesn%u2019t let the fact that she is confined to a wheelchair diminish her spirit or her grateful outlook on life. %u201CI can%u2019t go outside but I can look through my door at the beautiful day, God bless.%u201D

Despite her enthusiasm for life, Ms. Monroe knew her health demanded that she seek some help. She didn%u2019t have the money or the ability to cook for herself and so she turned to a church friend, who recommended Ms. Monroe contact Council on Aging of West Florida. Ever since, Ms. Monroe has been a dedicated fan of the meals. %u201CI don%u2019t know what I would do. They help me, Lord knows it. And they are really good!%u201D

She says other seniors like herself, %u201Ctrying to make it on their own,%u201D should call Council on Aging of West Florida and ask about the Meals on Wheels program.

Ms. Monroe ends with a nostalgic smile. %u201COn a day like this I%u2019d be fishin%u2019. I thank God to be still around.%u201D
