Today Joanne and I went to Richmond

We got up early and left Easton to go see Joanne's uncle Horace. He recently became very ill and had a very rough stay in the hospital. His condition was bad enough that many members of the family came up (or down) to make sure that they got to see him at least one more time.

It was very fortunate that he was in good spirits today. For a 98 year old man, he's been hanging in there. His skin was very thin and his hearing aids were broken or lost in the hospital, so it's hard for him to hear. This next week they are going to start giving him physical therapy to help him get up and moving again.

Horace is a very friendly man who has lived an amazing and adventurous life. I hope that he is able to make it to 100 - the world is better with him as a part of it.
