Urvashi and Edward were first brought together through our Elder Friends Phone Companions in November of 2020. As you can see, those first few phone calls have blossomed into a beautiful friendship! “I was new to the city and did not have many friends,” said Urvashi. “I got to know about LBFE through a flyer in July 2020 and immediately knew that I had to sign up! I like listening to the various stories and experiences that older adults share. Edward has a lot of stories to tell, and I learn a lot from our conversations. He is very warm and fun-loving – I enjoy spending time with him, and he does too. I introduced him to Indian food, and he introduced (and taught) me to mini-golf.”
Edward and Urvashi are both fully vaccinated, and after getting to know each other over the phone, they decided it was time to meet in person. From the looks on their faces, We would say they are thrilled they did!
