Show her your NLs player and show her how she can read on her own and her husband can do something on his own. Maybe he might want to play cards with a friend and she can read a talking book. For a few dollars you could get her an alarm clock or a watch. There is a lot of small things you can do for them. Just your companionship is a big help. It lets her know that blind people can do more than just sit in a chair, all day and be read to.

She, and her husband are in the same room, and he reads the Bible to her.
This is sad, because, what if (God forbid,) he dies, before she does?
Who will read to her, then?
I'll see if she has a recorder, and all of that, in the next two weeks.
My friends, go twice a month.
