Take GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s town hall meeting with voters Monday at the VFW hall in Milford, N.H. Dominique Favey had brought her 84-year-old mother, who has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, in hopes of giving her a memorable moment — a chance to shake hands with a potential future president who also had been the elder Favey’s next-door neighbor in Belmont since 1971, before their family moved to New Hampshire.
They sat in one of the front rows of chairs clustered around Romney as he carried a hand-held microphone to citizens with questions. He came to a man who had stood up directly behind the Faveys and handed the mic to him. And then the candidate noticed Dominique Favey, seated only inches from Romney, discreetly waggling her fingers at him and pointing toward her mother, Gilberte Favey.
When Romney recognized his former neighbor, his jaw dropped in surprise. He held her hands and then gave her a big hug, looking up, smiling, to tell his audience, “Old friends.”
Indeed so, and Mrs. Favey’s memories of Romney were sharp — and tender. “He used to come over and do my dishes,” she recalled. And once, when a body shop said her car had frame troubles, “he came and in his white shirt, crawled under the car and checked it. He crawled back out and said, ‘Gilley, your car’s just fine.’ ”
