Ivy Irving never thought her husband would die before her. “I smoked. He didn’t smoke. He was pretty healthy. He died from the blood pressure being too high.”
They were living on disability, “but when he died they took it away and gave me a widow’s check until I’m 66.”
“I never even heard of Real Change until about 7 years ago. I wasn’t buying the paper at first. My husband was because he liked the articles. Then I started reading it.”
After her husband’s death, their vendor suggested she might like selling Real Change.
“Oh, no, I don’t think I could.”
