April has been a beautiful, busy month!  A new resident, Della Bolt moved in to PG.  Della (86) raised 4 girls in Brunswick GA (Darlene, Christine, Henrietta and Della Mae,  in Brunswick GA) outlived 3 husbands, and spent the last 30 years living near Houston.  Her last husband, Guy Bolt, was a close friend of our family… built the house I was raised in, in Maryland and  Della was one of my mom’s best friends.  Della has been a big help wherever she’s been, and we’re glad for her influence already at PG.  Here she is her first day at PG and then with her daughters Chris and Della Mae and their husbands and granddaughter.

Jeannette Ford passed away in Fort Wayne IN.  Jeannette visited Esther Potts here several times, and then was a resident here for some months in 2015.  She fell and broke her hip, was in rehab here until it became clear she wouldn’t walk again…  so she was moved to a nursing home in Fort Wayne.  Here’s a picture of Jeannette enjoying hot fudge Sundays with Elton and Karen Cleveland when she first came to PG.  Also links to her funeral notes and pamphlet.

Alice turned 90 in April.  She has a big family, so she had lots of visitors!  They included Ron and Sharon Hanson with 2 daughters and a granddaughter, Roger and Marian Fryer, Charlie and Rosie Erickson, Lyle and Barb Davies, Karen Oetken, Mike and Carol Martin, Roger and Sue Erickson, Carol Erickson, and the Saldana family

My birthday was the same day as Alice’s, so… lots of food and visits.

John and Lois Culver’s brother passed away in TN.  They flew up for the funeral, and will return Thursday.  Here’s a picture of the Culvers with John, Norman and Tim Bradley at the back, Sue, Nell (Carl’s wife) and Lois in front.  The second picture is most of the workers that were at Carl’s funeral.

Other visitors in April included Mike and Karla Weber with Joyce, Cynthia Abate with Fern, Clayton and Pearl Strickland, and Linda Grotz with Marybelle.


Dominique Mille’s cousin Catherine from Paris is visiting for a few weeks.  Janice Witty from Ontario also visited.

We thought it was cute when our dog drug in a deer antler.  Until it gave us a flat!
