What has been the most challenging part of Covid-19? 

Trying to keep my business afloat,  I still have rent and mortgages to pay. I have 8 grand children and can’t see them and my son in law is a prison guard at Bridgewater, there are lots of cases down there and I’m worried sick he’s going to bring it home. It’s complicated. I also miss going to church and my community there.

What has given you strength/ are there any unexpected positives from this time?

Learning that I could cut my own hair.

Who do you wear a mask for?

I’ve been wearing a mask for everyone I come in contact with except my girlfriend and her son who I visit for dinner.
