Coming Home

Jeff came home on Friday, June 14th. While he is still having moments of general confusion, he is able to eat whatever he likes, walk around a bit, and talk to all of us. Considering that he could barely speak in the hospital, with stroke like symptoms on his left side, these past few days have been filled with blessings.

Fathers Day was great! His family spent the day with him eating, laughing, and even installing a rain barrel (something he wanted to water his beloved tomato plants). The highlight of the day was when his youngest granddaughter, Lylah, said “Papa” for the first time!

Monday, Jeff was even able to get out of the house and see Brody, his 4 year old grandson, at his baseball practice for the first time. This was something that Jeff looked forward to from the day Brody was born.

Tuesday was wonderful! Starting with breakfast from Bill’s Donuts and topping off the day with dinner on the back patio. Jeff couldn’t have been happier to see so many of his family members and close friends these past few days!

Our family is so thankful for all of the love and support. Please continue to pray for Jeff, his wife Colleen, and their family.

  3. Thank you so much for starting this blog. Once we hear someone is ill, we rarely hear much about them until its too late. I am so happy to hear that Jeff is able to do so many wonderful things with family and friends. I have nothing but good memories of Jeff, going all the way back to high school, some in the early 70’s, and most recently at the Little Colonel Reunion. He was always good for a laugh, fun to talk to and always polite and smiling. Hope he continues to enjoy life and make memories. Best wishes!
