Lots of hearts to everyone who helped me celebrate my 85th birthday on Aug 26. I was very surprised and delighted to see so many friends and family.
Hearts and halos to Rick Lester of Lester Painting and Brian Webb, manager of Napa Auto Parts in Greenwood. Last week my mother’s car wouldn’t start when she left her weekly hair appointment. Mr. Lester immediately offered his assistance in trying to diagnose the problem. When he determined that she needed a new battery, Mr. Webb not only sold her one but he also delivered it to her car and installed it as well. Both men were kind and compassionate and so professional. They defused a very stressful situation and saved the day. On behalf of my mom and myself, I would like to thank them both.
Hearts to Adjutant General Martin Umbarger for his commitment and service to our country and the men and women in his care. Your integrity and professionalism are a shining example to all. Your concern for our troops and your commitment to providing them with the best training, equipment and services is something that I will forever be grateful for. Thank you sir for your service to our community, to Indiana, to the Indiana National Guard and to our beloved United States of America.
Great big hearts to Lester Burton and Jay Fulmer for making the long drive down to Florida to visit Fred Winslow, who is a patient in the Clermont (Fla.) Health and Rehab Center, and to their wives for encouraging them to come. It not only lifted Fred’s spirits, but mine as well, to receive them and all of the nice greetings and words of encouragement from friends of the Hopewell Presbyterian Church and the Franklin Presbyterian Church and other friends of the surrounding communities.

Special thanks to John Bonsett for the jar of honey, Kathy’s Restaurant in Morgantown for the coffee cups, and Floyd’s Barber Shop of Trafalgar for the cap, and to Karen Fulmer, who sent her specialty rhubarb crisp, which was delicious. Lester Burton included an Indiana University cap and some Franklin souvenir items. Hoosiers are the greatest — God bless.
