Lois continued to improve in May, graduating from the wheelchair to a walker (most of the time).  Marybelle has been even more feeble, with some very bad days and then recovering somewhat for a week or so between bad days.  Clarence continues to sleep a LOT, but when he is awake he gets around ok and has a wonderful, thankful spirit.  Marilynn received good, clear results from her tests, so no more tests for 6 months.  Fern’s shingles have improved significantly, but are still sore.

May was a time for visitors and birthdays. Clarence has been a popular man this month! Here he is getting a visit from his grand-son and their family: Josh, Angela, Miranda and Logan. Ronald also had a visit from some of our Spanish friends, the Avila family: Felix, Corina, and Samantha. (pictured center). Elton was also pleasantly surprised with a visit from an old friend whom he used to meet with. Ernest and Etty Bruer came all the way from Connecticut to spend some time with him.

Many of our family came by as well including Mike and Ronda; who came to check on Jack and visit for a little while. Here they are posing with Della, Della’s daughter Chris, husband Mike and their dog.  Mike seems pretty pleased with himself after getting stuck while going fishing in the last photo.

With all of the family visiting we were glad to see Jack make it out to gospel meeting. And, as an added bonus, Brent flew in for a weekend visit. He even picked Jack up in a convertible! Check out these two cruisin’ dudes!

It wasn’t just family who visited, however. Fern was treated to a sweet surprise when some of her dear friends from NY & NC came to visit. Lyndon, Nadene and Jennifer (Lyndon’s sister), Laird spent a few days with us and were a great help lifting our spirits. We also had a stop over visit from a New Mexico native, Carolin Dunn on her way home to from winter in Florida (pictured right with Elton). She knew Della and Esther both quite well.

The third week in May we experienced some crazy weather. It poured rain off and on for several days with some high winds. Overall we were lucky, with only minor flooding and a few fallen trees… no significant damage.

All of that rain was great for napping! Here are Clarence and Marybelle competing for Pecan Grove Sleep Champion.

We enjoyed a few days with Salena’s mother, aunt and uncle: Diane, Doris, and Les Craighton. They drove in for the weekend and caught up on some much needed family time.

Just like with every month, someone was probably born. More so for the month of May. Kathy, Dominique, and Clarence all experienced birthdays this month.

Kathy hit the big “7-0” and we celebrated with a new take on her favorite dessert: Crème Brûlée Cake!

We also celebrated for Dominique’s 64th birthday. Salena tried to capture the fun of enjoying a classic French cheese plate with a “cheese” cake. It is really all the little details that brings it together.

And last, but certainly not least, Clarence Roachell celebrated his 94th birthday! His family came and took him for a lunch of catfish, after which he showed them a little tour of his room. Here he is pictured with his daughter Becky and her husband Mike along with their son Kevin and his wife Alley. As well as their three children Conner, Garret, and Addison.  His cake was about his passion… fishing!
