Over the years, we’ve seen many relationships bloom at Merrill Gardens. When two of our residents, Trudy and Daniel met – sparks flew!
How Did Trudy & Daniel meet?
Since moving in to Merrill Gardens, their paths crossed in the dining room from time to time. One day, Trudy asked Daniel if he would like to join her for her morning walks. He said yes, and the pair have been together ever since.
About the Couple: Trudy moved to the community in November of 2011 and Daniel Garcia moved in May of 2011.
Trudy and Daniel have decided to becoming life partners, and are enjoying life together at Merrill Gardens with their little dog Buddy.
We wish Trudy & Daniel many years of happiness together at Merrill Gardens!
The team at Merrill Gardens at Lancaster (CA) recently provided an amazing afternoon for one of our residents.
Mr. Foster with a big thumbs up!
Irwin Foster had always wanted to ride a Harley Davidson motorcycle. Mr. Foster was battling cancer and when our team learned about his desire to hit the road on a Harley, they sprang into action. They made lots of phone calls to find a way to give him a great ride and finally found the owner of a Harley dealership who was willing to help with a special bike.
The manager of the dealership did the honors himself, bringing the Harley to Merrill Gardens with Mr. Foster and his family anxiously waiting for him. With a little help, Mr. Foster was able to fulfill his dream and go for a ride, accompanied by a number of other riders, including his daughter and son in law. Mr. Foster’s family was overjoyed that he got to spend over an hour on the open road.
General Manager Kristen says she is really proud of her team for working so hard to provide Mr. Foster and his family with such a special day.
