Yet another addendum

I was remiss in my last post with the omission of some additional  visitors who also came from quite a distance in order to brighten our week. Kathy and Gary Shomo, Bijou Clinger and Allison Marthinsen, besties of ours from Chautauqua, provided several much-needed outings for Nancy, giving her a temporary break from her laundry, nursing, housekeeping, and other duties (Honey, will you be home soon?). Allison spent an extra day here and was privileged to witness my floundering on the mat  like a dying carp during physical therapy We are also indebted to Tim and Leslie Renjillian, Atlanta-based Chautauquans, who have been so generous to us in opening their home, arranging for meals, and helping us to feel more at home here. The moral support and love from everyone has made this trying time much easier to bear.

    Rob, I'm light years behind the rest of this amazing community of love and support. Peg and I have been in McDowell County, WV since the summer of 2017, and it wasn't until I spoke with Marvin and Martha Shank at the Virginia Mennonite Relief Sale this weekend that I learned of your accident and your incredible spirit and hard work since. I just read this collection of beautifully written and inspiring posts from the beginning. Be assured of our love and prayers. Trusting you'll be back to work soon.
