Mr.Ernest liked fresh strawberries. I was visiting one day recently when he called the VA kitchen to see if they would send him a bowl of strawberries. But, they were not available that day. The next week, I had been shopping and had some fresh strawberries. I took a dish by for Mr. Ernest. His supper tray had just arrived. It had 2 Bowls of strawberries.
He was so happy I had brought strawberries. He said there could never be too many strawberries!!
We will miss you, but hope to meet in heaven, where it will always be strawberry season.

I have visited Mr Brown on Sundays on a regular basis to bring him holy communion. He loved the Carol Vinson VA medical center which became his home for the past few years. At one point he was moved to a very large private room with an unoccupied room next to him. It was closed off from the rest of the unit. We titled him "General in the penthouse" which he loved. He loved to play religious spirituals on his boom box as loud as was possible without disturbing others. He was in his joy listening to his music.
