BETH'S COMMENTS:  "I don't know that [Jimmy] wanted to talk, but he wanted to be present with people and I think so many of the people we met wanted to be present with people. They're cut off so much from people, they're cut off so much from just the things that we all take for granted every day—getting up and not having a routine, or having a routine that involves lots of different things. And I, keep thinking about that, like, how can we do that better? How can we treat these people with more humanity and with more compassion and intellectual stimulation... all the things that we get all the time that we don't even really think about?"

Beth: OK, this is Beth and I am interviewing Jimmy at KenCrest. It's April 23rd and Lisa is in the room and your name is?

Kristy: Kristy.

Beth: And Kristy is in the room as well. So Jimmy you're looking at your pictures here and you really like to look at pictures so tell me a little bit about your family here. You said this was at a wedding.
