When I got back from my fitness exercise, Monday, I had three phone messages waiting wishing me a happy birthday. Then I opened my e-mails there was another. That is a great way to begin another year.
I called to see how Jewell Johnson is doing. Lowell says that she is doing fairly well. It is hard to lose your companion of 73 years. When I told my son, Don, about Bro. Tom’s death, he said he remembered how nice Jewell was when he had made his unannounced visits as a very young boy. We lived next door to Tom and Jewell when Don was born and until they moved to town. Don has good memories of both of them.
