July has been a busy month.  Alice and Ronald went with us to Happy.  Fern is at Milford and will be at Altamont.  Gilbert hasn’t been feeling well, but otherwise all 10 residents are doing their usual.

We had our July 4th on the evening of the 3rd. Here’s the group watching fireworks, and Joan Hinkley helping Marybell roast a marshmallow.

Kathy’s cousin Lori Morgan (59), who lived 50 miles from here, passed away a few months ago. A memorial service was held for her her at PG on July 6th.  Her brother, Troy and Linda Morgan and their children Amenah and Justice came from Maryland.  Several other cousins came from Arizona.  Most have eastern Montana roots.  Kathy’s sisters, Pat Johnson (Iowa), and Kim Schneider (MN) came.  The second picture is of the cousins and 2 aunts, Jane (Morsted) Jacobsen and Marjorie Williamson.  The third picture is of the cousins and their spouses. The fourth picture is of our family, 3 children with spouses and 6 grandchildren.

Joe and Jean Epps from Alabama came to visit Fern with Pearl Bailey.  Here they’re with Troy Morgan and family from Maryland.  Not long after their visit here, Joe Epps had a stroke and passed away suddenly.  The second picture is of Della with her niece Mary Holland from San Angelo.

We had 2 sings in July.  One after union meeting and one at Patty Maki’s last Sunday.  Elton played the piano at both.

Elton’s son David Cleveland from PA and David’s daughter Leah and Darron Griffin from GA were here to visit Elton.  Rick and Ann Overby were here to visit Wayne and Dawn, and the residents.

My sister Ronda came to spend some time with Dad, and Salena’s mother and aunt, Diane and Doris, came to see Salena.  The third picture includes our son Kenny (Salena’s husband).  Salena is the manager at PG.  The 4th picture is of Mimi Mille with the 5 residents she cuts hair for, John, Ronald, Elton, Gilbert and Jack.

Calvin and Nedda Penland visited from Missouri.  Samuel and Conchita Valdez came back for a visit with Samuel’s brother Noe and Magdalina Valdez.  Aaron and Laura McGee visited with children Decland and Norah.

Two final pictures… one of the young folks at Happy.  The second reminds us of the famous words… Houston, the eagle has landed!  This eagle was carved in the stump of a huge oak tree in May 2014.  The 3rd picture is from that time.  It rotted from the inside out… and finally crashed.
