One afternoon, music therapist Christina Britton Conroy was taking nursing home residents to activities. She was thrilled when a sweet, disoriented lady joined her group. "Mary, it's so good to see you. Do you want to go to the Bible study or BINGO?" she asked.
Mary replied, "I want to go to Lithuania."
