  • Miracles happen

    Joan Chipkar is one of those people I can’t say no to.
    In 2004, after Florida was hit by hurricanes, she convinced me to go with her to do laundry for health department staff working in the hardest hit area.
    Last year, when her beloved therapy dog Charlie died, I wrote an obituary column about the brown and white cocker spaniel.
    And when she called last week to ask me to write about her miracle great-grandson Landon in Alabama, I didn’t say yes, but I didn’t say no.
