We continue to visit a lady named Lacy. She has a kidney problem and the doctors have made no headway, it seems, to find the root problem.
I go almost daily to visit a 51-year old man named David at the local county hospital near me. He has been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer with no promise of arresting its deadly attack. He has finally been given word that the first chemo treatment will be given, but we will see. David is a man who has turned his life around after drugs and prison life. He went back to school and earned a college degree this year. He works at Coronado Stone manufacturing plant as a lead maintenance worker. We pray for his condition daily.
A week ago Monday we held a birthday party for a long-time family friend, Mr. K. L. Freeman, who turned 81. We planned a get-together at a nearby restaurant and nine of us showed up. But he didn't! He is in poor health now and was not feeling up to it. We ate and enjoyed a time of fellowship with each other, then several of us drove over to K.L.'s house and presented him with cards, gifts and a homemade dessert that he had requested (banana pudding).
Yesterday, I performed the memorial service for a dear friend, Robert W. Anderson Sr. He was an 86-year old WWII Navy veteran. He was a wonderful husband, dad and grandpa. He worked 24 years for Kaiser Steel, lived in Rialto for 54 years and just this year he and his wife celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary. He left a legacy indeed to this world! He loved the Lord and was active in church.
