Working at the hospital in a small town you get to know and meet alot of the people in the community. The summer before last Andy managed the golf course in town and he also got to know many of the people in town. There is one particular couple that has been on our hearts lately. Andy got to know both Ron and Edna as they were active golfers, Edna on the ladies' team and Ron on the mens. I also had the priviledge of getting to Edna a little as she came into hospital regularly for treatment. Ron and Edna also had twin boys so we often laughed about the challenges of raising them. Both Ron and Edna were very sweet people who, when you visited with them, were always genuinely concerned at what was going on in your life and how you were doing.
Last week we found out that Edna passed away. What a huge loss this will be for this small community. Her smiling face and positive outlook will be missed by all who knew her. I wanted to get a card in the mail to Ron, so I made this one and will send it out thi week.
