For Linda Sterthous, CEO at Martins Run, her staff,
And all the residents I came to love
Becomes a brainstorm that might yield good results,
When almost-strangers recognize they are working
For the good of all, and when every resident and
Every staff member agrees on how
Special she really is,
Even the aftermath of a dental visit
And its effect on an empty stomach after hours of conversing
And coming up with ideas, and ideas, and more ideas,
Cannot kill the awareness that Martins Run
Lucked out in the lottery of life
With a CEO who definitely
Deserves to be called
For a most wonderful morning
And for an unexpected lunch.
Dr. Henrik Eger
