Paradise is both here and beyond

 Gerri Caron grew up in Maine. Raising a family in lobster country, they weathered nor’easters and weathered cold winters. By the time I met her, a couple of years ago, she was in her late 70s and was here to visit her daughter and my colleague, Lori. She was a sweet lady with sparkly blue eyes and a head full […]
