The new chair is to be a Queen Anne style, higher, and with arm rests she can use to push herself up. It should recline if possible, but there can be no handles or buttons. It needs to be the kind you use your body to lean back in, or lean forward to bring it up.

Gummy's not making memories anymore, but we are, and she's still part of ours.
