Hello everyone- As you can imagine my days are crossing and the dates are getting all screwed up in my head but I will try to keep them straight so the dates I put up here may not be correct and for that I apologize.
My Dad is having periods where he remembers people but it is different from moment to moment as I am sure some of you know. Yesterday he ate a fourth of a popsicle and then went back to sleep. He got up to walk around his area as much as he could with the feeding tube in place and then went to sleep. Mom and Auntie Roberta just left to go be with him and I will go this afternoon to sit with him. He can barely talk because it is so hard for him so we commmunicate with jestures, winks, smiles, and squeezing hands. When I go I just sit and read my Bible out loud to him. Mom says he would like that and it is a comfort for them. I find this time I am able to return the love he so freely gave to all and use the Language of the Heart to communicate with him. I let him know people love him and are thinking of him. Thank you for all the notes you are putting in this blog. I am printing all of them so that when the time comes and Mom is able she can read them and perhaps keep them. I know she is very grateful to all of you for all your loving support through all of this as am I. I will update again soon.
God Bless-- Connie and family

Comment Sharon and family, I've just learned of Rick's death. I can't express how sorry I am for your loss, and our loss. Please let me know if there's anything I could do. You both have been so much more important to me than you could know. Love and Peace, Bill

Comment Dear Sharon, Connie, and other family members, Although we will all miss Rick terribly, his life will continue through all of his family and friends as we share stories and loving memories. He is a good person and has fought a valiant fight. I love you, Lynne

Comment Situationof last ten days forced me to come out of my procrastination. Thank GOD for this modern method of communication. I finally learned how to get into this blog, It's 11:30 hrs on the 29th Apr and am at work. Took some time to look into this computer and read the good news. I don't know why but I keep going back to one incident that has been stuck in my mind. It was the summer of 77, on E-500. Rick, your office did not have windows in it. And as I came up to E-500 to visit with you, while in the hallway, I heard loud voices coming out of your office. And then you stormed out. When I walked into your office, there was one patient sitting in a chair, (I'm glad he was sitting), dumfounded looking at a brass coin in his hand. And that was your 8th year sobriety chip. What happened, I asked him. He said "Rick told me, if I don't work the recovery program according to the suggestions of the Big Book, I'll never have the chance to get a coin likethis", and then he showed me your coin. I took to heart what you told him, and I kept trudging. I don't know if that statement ever helped that patient, but it sure gave me the assurance that the solution is in the book. I love you Rick. Love you Sharon, and all.lou

Comment Hello, this is Warren & Yvonne Stanton from Hutchinson, KS. We continue to remember you in our prayers daily. Reading the Bible is so uplifting, in knowing that God loves us unconditionally. May the Lord wrap his loving arms around each one of you and hold you close to one another and to the one who loves us unconditionally, our Heavenly Father. Love You All.
