Robert and Justine.
Below is Millie. You might have seen another photo of her last month (https://maundymitchell.com/the-unseen-county-home-portraits-part-v/). I photographed her in mid-February as she was preparing for a date with her new boyfriend. During this visit, I got to learn more about her as we sat by the window in her room.
“One time I went through the car wash and forgot to put my windows up. Once I realized it, they wouldn’t go up. All I could do was laugh!”
Millie and her new boyfriend? They’re doing well.
Before becoming a resident of the Belknap County Nursing Home, Millie worked here for many years, caring for the residents as she herself is now cared for.
Remo was a very avid hiker.
“Have you ever climbed Mount Washington?”
“Many times. Many times, even in the winter.”
“Okay! I’m ready for my picture! Ha!”
During this visit, I also met the family of Joe, who had passed away that morning. While I hadn’t gotten a chance to make a true portrait of Joe, I did remember talking with him in the hallway just before Christmas and taking this quick photo. Rest in Peace, Joe.
