FIRSTHAND: Coronavirus – Sherry Boswell


Sherry's mom suffers from Alzheimer’s disease, and after her care facility went on lockdown to prevent the spread of coronavirus, the mother and daughter were no longer able to visit in person. But on a recent drive past her mom’s home, Sherry impulsively pulled over and ran up to her window. They had an emotional encounter through glass, which Sherry hopes will sustain her mom’s memory of her.
