The thing I love most about the Woodlands is having company. For an only child, it’s nice to have others around. I enjoy sitting on the front porch with my Woodlands family and looking up at the sky. The food is good and I enjoy it. I have a clean plate every time they bring me one! I also enjoy playing cards, checkers and games. I’m really happy to be here. H Cummings
