Verdamay Faust and Delos "Pockey" Weseman have been supporters of the senior citizen mealsite for several years. They come for the nutritious, hot meal but the real bonus is the lively conversation and reminiscing they routinely enjoy. I met up with the two spirited seniors, and they shared their stories. As etiquette requires – ladies first.
