The Importance of the Keeping in Touch Program

KIT ProgramThe following account is based on a true story. The names have been changed. On a cold and snowy morning Janet woke from a deep sleep. "Something's wrong" she thought. Her thoughts were jumbled. She called out for her husband, Tim. No answer, Tim died 2 years ago. Then, just as she was trying to make sense of what was going on she heard her phone ring. She tried to reach for her phone, but her left arm wouldn't move.
