We’re glad to have Jeannette Ford with us temporarily at PG, and Leah Bolt still visiting.  All 9 are doing reasonably well.  Esther had a bad spell this month, but seems to be doing better now.  She’s 99 1/2… will be 100 in September!  Here’s a picture of Jeannette and Jashell (a new staff member).  Also a picture of Bea dragging her laundry basket.

February 1 after union meeting we took the PG bus to the nursing home where Roger lives, to celebrate his 95th birthday.  We had a 6 candle instead of a 9, so we put 56 on the cake.  Roger’s memory isn’t very good, but he knew that wasn’t right!  Teresa sat down at the piano and played… attracting nursing home residents we didn’t know, who proceeded to request songs and then sing along!

We had lots of visitors during special meetings.  We failed to take pictures of several of them, but here are 2 pictures, one of Matt, Andrea, Emmy  and Alice with the Milles, and another of Charles, Andrea and Matt.

Mireille’s (Mimi’s) birthday is today.  Yesterday evening a group of us were together with her at the cabin.  Families there included Colsons, Makis, Milles, Newmans, Overbys, Hoffmans and Valdezs.

Some have been asking about Mary Jane Pike.  We hear she’s doing well there in NC.  Here’s a recent picture of her with the Lawrences.
