Mildred McGaffigan of Pembroke was preparing for a busy weekend on a Thursday afternoon in July 2016. She planned to register for an art class when her husband was back with their car. She had a cribbage tournament on Saturday, and planned to play bocce on Sunday. But she was most focused on the garden party she was hosting the next day.
After tidying up her garden, Mildred was rushing back into her garage when she missed a small step. She thought her shin had just grazed the door frame as she fell.
"It was true carelessness on my part," Mildred says.
