Senior spotlight: Rain brings memories of my son

Mary Jo Brown

This rainy weather reminds me of my son, Drew. On the way to the children’s hospital, he’d be looking out of the window singing “raindrops keep falling on my head,” whether it was raining or not.

He’d look at me and smile.

That’s a memory I’ll treasure forever. You see, my son died of leukemia shortly after one of those trips we took to the hospital. It’s been awhile, but memories linger on, and certain things remind me of him.

There are other more pleasant memories I have of all my children, but the rain seemed to bring this one to mind today.

Birthdays I have this month are: Reba Wilson, Jean Muhme, Marie Hardin, Tanya Bohrer, Amber Southard, Eleanor Conner and Kaley Gill.

Get well/speedy recovery to Margaret Thompson. Harriet Decker, Twila Holmes and Sophie Nardie are all home. Wishing everyone a get well/speedy recovery.

The noon potluck is Friday at Sunset Meadows I. Bring a friend.

Don and Ruth Seick are moving. There will be a pizza party for them at 5 p.m. Sunday at Sunset Meadows I. Come and say goodbye.

News always welcome.
