    Judge Comment: Great writing, and particularly enjoyed the feature on the therapy dog. Similarly, appreciated you tackling a tough topic, in terms of long-term care, which is often needed but rarely talked about. And the firsthand account of addiction story was great, with an insightful lead. Good work!
