    Glad they found her! Hope they don’t let her drive anymore though…

    I really think that once we reach a certain age we should be required to have a physical in order to renew our license every year. Maybe social security age? I don’t know. It’s just really scarey to think that our elderly are driving when it is unsafe to do so. Not only for them, but for pedestrians and other drivers as well

    Did she get the donuts?

    There is a local company that sells gps tracking/locating devices that those who are prone to wander or suffer from memory loss can wear – lighter than a cell phone. http://www.trackwhatsimportant.com. I hope this family learns about this company so they can prevent the worry and find her safely & quickly.
