BEN GOES TO HIS PROM–By: Carole Norman Scott-September 7th, 2021


This is a picture of Ben dressed up to go to his “Prom.” They said he was smiling and moving to the music! They had 4 different proms so there wouldn’t be so many at any one (because of restrictions about Covid). His Social Worker bought him new clothes especially for the event. Our daughter said, “It would be interesting to be a ‘fly on the wall’ at Ben’s prom!” We agree! I can’t get used to him with a completely bald head. Here’s how his hair used to look. Of course, that was when he was in his twenties, and before he was put on seizure meds (which don’t help the hair situation). AND, he’s 59 now. That makes a BIG difference! He looks good to me…whatever!
