I ate lunch Wednesday at Peabody Senior Center. The Reverend Ragland had a Lenten message, which was good.

Michele and I went to Marion Thursday for my last physical therapy session. I also picked up my income tax information. We returned to Peabody and delivered a birthday cake to Legacy Park. We visited Dorothy Whisler, Emma Shaw, and Dorna Robb.

Pat Phillips called Friday morning to tell me J.C. Heyman had died. It was such a shock and I thought about Sandi and the family.

I went to Legacy Park Friday afternoon to a birthday party. They have such a good time. After the party, I visited Don Gillet, Rubena Jost, Laura Branham, Aunt Leona Widler, Rosalie Smith, and Marge Morgan.

Eric Magette and my great-grandson, Matthew, of Eudora arrived at the Ammeter farm to spend the weekend. Oh, he is such a boy. Sally and Myron Ammeter arrived later in the afternoon. They had been helping Chad and Angela and boys move from Junction City to Manhattan. Melody and Steve Magette came later in the afternoon to spend the weekend. “Ammeter Hotel” was busy. Blaine Ammeter came early evening and spent the night.

On Sunday, we had church at Summit. Company always increases our congregation. The Reverend Ragland had his usual good sermon. Sunday dinner guests of LaVonne’s were Myron and Sally, Melody and Steve, Gary Davis of Newton, and Eric and Matthew. They all left in the late afternoon. Sally and Myron went to Opal Craney’s to spend Sunday night and Monday.

Carolyn Matz of Wichita and Kathryn Ireland of rural Newton picked up LaVonne to attend J.C. Heyman’s funeral at Burns. We went to the burial at Ebenezer. It was a really nice service.

Marge Gray and Gwen Gaines had invited the Summit women to their circle for breakfast at Indian Guide at Florence. Michele and I met Dorene Kirkpatrick there and we had a lovely and delicious breakfast. Their meeting featured Linda Eden Rad with a Lenten message and it was wonderful. Afterward we went to the senior citizen center for lunch. Marilyn Cox had a Lenten message. We had good food, good fellowship, and wonderful Lenten messages.

We’re still having roller coaster weather. It froze my jonquils but the crocuses are beautiful today. We extend our love, sympathy, and prayers to the J.C. Heyman family. J.C. will be missed.
