The first part of the trip itself was uneventful, but it was turmoil for me. Of course, my emotional well-being could have been remedied with a simple U-turn, but a few miles down the road, Joe reminded me that I was upsetting the baby. What kind of mother was I who I didn’t notice that? What kind of mother was I going to be in a strange land, with even stranger people? I was just a Tennessee hillbilly who had never been anywhere, nor done anything.
This past week we lost another resident to death, Noah Kennedy. He was 72 years old and was well-known for his kindness and gentle smile to his daughters, grandchildren and family. Noah will be greatly missed. We ceaselessly pray for Judy Adcock and Maynard Stringfield.
