GrandPals

GrandPal Deb Pillow

Ella Leving • April 22, 2024

Deb Pillow, originally from Michigan and with a background in teaching and storytelling, found her perfect fit in GrandPals after moving to Princeton from Arizona just two-and-a-half years ago. With two married sons and four grandchildren spread across the country, GrandPals allows her to indulge her love for books and young children while enjoying retirement in Princeton.

“Frances is such a sweet and enthusiastic kindergartner and listener. He has a vivid imagination and loves books. The week before spring break, I asked him if his family was going to do anything special or go anywhere over spring break. With his usual enthusiasm, he replied, ‘Oh yes, I think we’re going to the beach. And I told my daddy I wanted to take my GrandPal.’ What a thought!!!
P.S. I didn’t go 😉 but it really touched me to think he wanted to include me.”
