She has her own bed. Her comforter is warm and smells amazing from...

My mother was a walker. In the last years of her life, she was faithful to get up each day and walk for an hour in Michigan - no matter what the weather was. I think on very snowy winter days, she stayed inside and got on a treadmill, but for the most part, she was out...
