Della Bolt went down quickly after leaving PG March 10th, and passed away peacefully May 1. She was 90 years old. Much was said at her funeral by her daughter Henrietta, nephew Charles Strong, Esther Duncan and Rich Raschke, to remind us of what a wonderful spiritual and strong woman Della was. We are grateful for the 4 years she had at PG with us. Email Ken if you’d like the link to an audio of her funeral.

April showers have continued into May. Which for us means more mowing! The rain didn’t stop the visitors though, we have had several special visits this month. Beginning with a few visits from our workers. Talus and Lyle stopped by for lunch, and on a separate occasion several sisters stopped by. Mary Simon, Jennifer Bartels and Jennifer Lester. Mary had just returned from Central America and shared some stories of her time there.

We also enjoyed a revisit from Gwen Farmer. She was accompanied by several other sisters who were traveling together. Here they are together. It was nice of them to offer for our residents to take a sister workers photo with them.

Elton had a visit from some old friends, Aaron and Lori Stallings. Here they are with Karen and Elton.

Our old friends from the East Coast Jim and Linda Bolt came for the funeral of their aunt Della. Jim grew up with Ken in Maryland and knows the family well. Several other visitors are shown below.

Karen thought it would be nice to take Elton to see Fern and Gilbert. Here they are together with Gilbert, and again in Ferns’ room for a visit.

Joyce had a family of old friends from Nebraska come visit, she really enjoyed the special time. Here they are in front of the piano.

Mckynna, Gus, Linken, Joanna and Shay Hottell.

The Schroeder’s grand-daughter Candace Sandon and her three kids came for a few day visit. They enjoyed making puzzles with Elsie and even worked with her to cook dinner for the residents. Here they are being read to by Marilynn, and putting together puzzles. The boys loved being outside, swimming in the pool, fishing and pedaling the pedal boat on the lake. They picked a fresh pond Lilly from the lily pads for the table.

May saw several big birthdays the first of which was Kathy, who turned 72! We celebrated all of the family’s May birthdays at once, and here are the happy birthday girls. They wanted an ocean themed cake, so Salena delivered.

We have had a few moments for candid shots this month. Here is Ken getting advice from Elton on how to clean gutters, Ronald getting a hair cut, and Marie working with Karen to make omelets. Last we have our resident mothers celebrating mothers day together, and the newest “resident” of the week a tree frog.

We really appreciate your continued interest in us here at PG.

Kenny and Ken
