She may not hear her own voice, but her laugh is real – and so is her happiness as she waves upwards from her chest.

On March 21, Theona Anderson brought her exuberant personality to the United Church Hall and showed the people in attendance how to speak to her through sign language.
For one hour, participants repeatedly practised words relating to general conversation such as "hello," "good bye," "How are you"? "you’re welcome," "I love you" and "have a good day."
Anderson was excited to teach and signed to the class just how happy she was to show people a new language.
Taking people two at a time, she showed them how to have a conversation using the words and sentences she provided.
Participants laughed at themselves when they forgot a certain sign, but they all agreed the session was valuable and they look forward to running into Anderson at the grocery store and asking how she is doing.
