Trixie, Mr. Lee Case’s fluffy and friendly Bijon Poodle, is the first one to the door when the volunteer knocks. At 93, Lee is right behind Trixie with a warm smile and an invitation to come in for a minute to his comfortable home. Trixie came into the picture four years after Lee’s wife passed away. Lee exclaimed, “Trixie is my companion and best friend”.
Lee also joined the Marines and served during WW2 in Saipan and Iwo Jima. He was one of the first Veterans to take the Honor Flight to Washington DC in 2010. He recalls the experience with great enthusiasm and was humbled to be honored.
Not only does Lee receive meals, Trixie is included in a weekly delivery of dog food. “I didn’t realize that Trixie would be receiving food as well. I am very grateful to know that each week, her food arrives with mine. Many seniors like me, appreciate not worrying about purchasing dog food. I want to stay in my home, as long as I can and Meals on Wheels helps me with that goal”.
