    Re the couple celebrating their 67th – goodness, they are beautiful, and peaceful, still sharing emotion and presence with one another.

    Our very longtime CA pastor (who was part of our lives and our blessings in the 1980s) and his wife are in their late 80s, I suppose. About six weeks he had to have a heart valve replace, having had a quadruple bypass about 35 years go when we were still in CA and he was still our pastor. They are lovely and loving and quiet like these folks.

    The recovery from the valve replacement has not gone well. He is the Loma Linda University Hospital in SoCal, and with the Covid 19 stuff, they have not been able to see each other since the day before he was admitted. My heart breaks for them. His wife is an accomplished, practicing RN (retired now,obviously) and she tried hard to have that taken into consideration by the medical team so that she might be allowed to see him. No dice, which is not surprising.

    I’m just so sorry for what they are having to endure at this late stage in their lives after almost sixty years of shoulder-to-shoulder life.

    I think their world has gotten pretty small in recent weeks – just enduring each day, and closing in tight with immediate family. So many who love them so much send them lots of loving notes but we understand that that doesn’t fix it. I hope it helps that they we love them.

    During the 18 years we were in MN, they made a point on a cross-country trip to spend a day with us. They are part of that group who are the faithful, long-haul servants.
