Doris Crawford, who had been at PG almost 8 years, left in January. Her sister, Sandra Wilson, came for a visit with Louise Martin, and decided to take Doris back to Alabama with her. Hopefully she’ll be able to get Doris into a nursing home there. Doris’s care needs were really beyond what we should be doing in an assisted living facility, but the staff loved her so much they didn’t want to see her go! Please contact me if you would like Sandra’s address. We now have 7 residents at PG. We heard that Evelyn Wilson (Sandra’s sister-in-law) who was at PG for a year, passed away in Missouri. The first picture is the group saying goodbye to Doris. The second is of Louise and Marybelle with Ty Nordic’s parents, Sharon and Gary.
A kiwi family (kiwi means from New Zealand), Brent, Ellen, Amanda, Brayden and Evan Roberts, came for a visit. They are shown below at the residence and with the Hoffmans and their goats.
While they were here Marybelle had her 91st birthday, so they fixed Pavlova! Ruth’s sister Martha and husband Hubert visited.
William and Mark visited, shown here with John. Noe and Malena visited Samuel and Conchita.
Lyle and Silas stopped by for a brief visit. Jennifer and Sarah visited and took Alice on special meeting rounds.
Alice’s niece Marian and Roger Fryer are staying near here for a month or so, visiting and escaping the Wisconsin winter. Roger is helping Marybelle improve her chess game.
We have 4 in the nursing homes near PG now. Alice is with Teresa below. Teresa has some bad sores on the back of her head and neck, that the doctors think are cancerous. She doesn’t get out of bed anymore, but she’s happy and peaceful. Roger has gone down a lot recently. Naomi is doing much better with a new medication they’re giving her. She’s weak and her memory is poor but she’s up some every day, happy and thankful. Clinton is stronger, but his mind hasn’t improved.
We’re having beautiful warm weather now, after nearly 5 inches of rain and some freezing nights earlier in January. The grass is turning green and the trees are confused. Here’s a picture of the pecan orchard.
