Chrystal Hawley

I remember visiting nursing homes with my church group as a child. While other children cowered into my Sunday school teacher’s legs, I felt drawn to those wrinkles of unknown origin. I don’t know if it was the warmth in their hugs, wisdom in their faces, or sheer appreciation of someone wanting to visit with them that drew me in.
