> On the last day of Bell Camp, in August 2017, we all gathered at the
> NFB building in Baltimore. I walked across the room to where Renee
> Donalvo Carlson was working at a small table. I’d known Renee since
> earlier in the summer when her husband Don volunteered to drive the
> group of campers from our area to and from the Bell Camp at the
> Glendale campus. I mentioned that we were trying to help our son Paul
> find new friends, and Renee quickly suggested that she would like to
> start up monthly tutoring sessions with Paul and Luis, who Paul had
> befriended at Bell. From that day on, until the pandemic hit, the
> group met almost every month to practice Braille, share some treats,
> and have a fun time together.
> Since March of this year, Paul has been reading Braille with Renee
> three times a week, for thirty minutes, over the phone. Thank you,
> Renee, for this enormous gift of your time, knowledge, patience and
> good cheer!
