  1. Husband

    It is with deep, deep sorrow that I tell you of the death of my beloved husband of 55+ years on May 24, 2014. We shared so many wonderful years together and I will miss him beyond words. Please remember me and our son (age 47) in your prayers. John has been a tower of strength for me in the last few days even though he was hurting, too. My family, friends and church family have been there for me. Thank you for caring.

We were having a problem finding ...

I'm sure time will help and I will be spending entirely too much time on it. There is a way to access books from our local library but I haven't figured that one out yet. I can also surf the net and get e-mail (gotta learn that, too). Oh my, this is a not a curve this is a complete right or left turn. We will see if ...
  5. Last Rose of Summer

    This morning I went to pick up the mail from our mailbox and saw "the last rose of summer" looking beautiful but somewhat wilted. For some reason the follow came into my mind. Hope you enjoy it.


    As the last rose of summer
    she hangs her lovely head.
    She wanted sunshine this morning,
    but awoke to hoar frost instead.

    She tried to lift her petaled face
    but did not have the power.
    As all her lovely ...
