Choir director, Jane Strating, came to visit us this afternoon. Her “story” is so interesting, I’m wondering if I should be recording. Yes, this 80 year old dynamo rode her bike across the park to visit with us.
After, Jane left, we drove over to check on Marlys. Her husband passed away earlier this morning. She was in excellent spirits, but she will be dealing with the adjustment of separation after being married over 70 years to her beloved husband. She also had wonderful stories to tell us. While we were there, another friend, Taima, also a widow, from Estonia, came to visit Marlys. It’s just wonderful how these folks look after and care for each other. We prayed with Marlys and hugged her, again, and left the two of them sitting on her front porch talking. So cute.
