Thanks, Barb G

Well, my birthday is just around the corner and let me tell you that I feel it too. The past week my eye site took a drastic change. Today I was getting ready to make an eye appointment because my readers where no longer focusing for me. I ketp holding them out in front of me, but they were crystal clear. This morning while trying to look up my optometrist and out of  blurry frustration I thought I’d clean them with a breath and rub…. Well, the left lens was gone!     I’m not sure I want to laugh or cry. Connie

Love you Connie,

Happy Birthday in advance.  It is great to know that our personalities don't change that much over the years. Have a wonderful Birthday celebration and remember it is better to be seen than viewed.

Connie, I know how you feel. I was at a marching band contest in 2019 and suddenly I realized that I was seeing double!  I had driven two hours to the contest with no trouble but I was sure glad I wasn't alone because I certainly couldn't drive home. It's a brain problem. There's nothing wrong with my eyes physically. Glasses correct the problem, thank goodness. 
Beverly, it's good to hear from you! Are you still in Washington, DC.?

Hi everyone!

Becky Davis asked me to share this information to all of you.

Their son, Ben, passed away this morning, Sunday, June13, at 6:04 am.  Ben had been at Becky and Glenn's home from May16th until today June 13th. Good Shepherd Hospice has been helping them get through all of this. Ben is survived by his wife, Cassandra, and 4 children, Makayla 18, Gunnar 17, Braxton 13, and Axyl 9. Ben was diagonosed with colon cancer 4 years ago this coming October

Becky doesn' t  know when the services will be. Broadway Colonial is in charge of the services. Cassandra won't be going to the funeral home until Tuesday. Becky is hoping the services will be Friday or Saturday. Cassandra will be making the decisions on all the arrangements. As soon as we know anything I will let you know.

When I talked to Becky she said she was going to try to sleep until 6pm today.  As most of us know, being a caregiver is very exhausting. 

Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts. Becky really appreciates all of you being there for her.

Love to all of you and God Bless all of you!

Ladies: The group has decided that we could incite more of you to join our monthly lunches if we moved the date. Therefore, our lunches will be on the first WEDNESDAY of each month still at 1pm. Lee has all the new dates for the rest of this year and will put them on the home page soon.

Our next luncheon will be Wednesday, Aug 4th, 1 pm, at the Carriage Crossing in Yoder. Please! Please, come join the fun!

Hope to see you there!

The School Bored Four barbershop quartet's bass singer, Ken Elder, passed away last week after a brave fight with cancer. In the photo Ken is the jovial fellow with the green tie. Ken's voice was added to the quartet in 2014 after our original bass moved to Idaho and we have enjoyed his humor, hard work, and positive attitude for the last seven years. Ken was a school teacher, Air Force veteran, skydiving inscructor, computer programmer, and great musician. He recently started studying the pan flute. Ken's wife, Joanie, was the quartet's most avid cheerleader and promoter. Ken's passing leaves a big empty space in our hearts.

Roger, I am so sorry to hear this.  I know it is a great loss and grief to you and many others.  My sympathies.

Glenda Magee (Miller)

Sorry for your loss Roger. The downside of living longer is the losses we experience. May your heart embrace all the joy of this relationship as you grief the loss.

Carol Little (Blake)

Roger, what a loss for you and your quartet! It's hard to lose someone after you've sung together for so long. Prayers for comfort and healing for you and your musical friends!
