Carolyn Denson James Takes In Ex-Music Teacher, Marty Hayes, Who Has Dementia

Remember that teacher who managed to unknowingly change your life? We suggest you find them and thank them right now. Because the story below is about to make you feel seriously grateful.

In 2004, Carolyn Denson James set out to find her old high school music teacher, who was a woman named Marty Hayes.

James, who lives in Frisco, Tex., wanted to thank Hayes for inspiring her to be a teacher when she'd had her in class 35 years earlier.

“She meant the world to me,” James, now 62, told TODAY.com. “She made everyone feel special, that they brought something to the table.”

. . . .

James immediately realized she needed help. She and her husband began regularly visiting Hayes to help her pay bills and bring her to medical appointments. Eventually, Hayes bought a home in Frisco. And then, in 2007, when her condition had grown worse, she moved in with the Jameses.

. . . .

Hayes now requires help in most aspects of her life, according to TODAY.com. But her former student is around to help her with daily tasks like getting dressed and eating. And Hayes certainly hasn't stopped sharing knowledge.
