Dearest Passions. (Sis, Marty,Marge...) please send prayers... Katie (our youngest) who just moved out of home this week and is on her own for the first time (21yrs. old) into a nice Christian home (baby sitting and ranch work). needs our prayers. ASAP.
PS... The stupid hospital wouldn't even give Rosemary or I any Info. unless Katie would sign a wavier... and she’s so drugged out she can’t even spell her name. Can you believe that.........??? Expecting us to call her... she’s waiting, waiting, waiting.... where’s... mom and dad...
So Much Much Love, (Lucky) Dale Gwaltney
PSS ... Rosemary here - latest update - Katie had to have a corneal transplant. She suddenly went blind in one eye. She could see the big E on the chart at this morning's Dr. check. That's not much, but it's something.
We're praying the transplant will be a success, and some vision will return.
Not even a week.....
three days have passed since your depart
and your sparkling eyes I’m missing
in quiet of the snowy fall
I recall my days of blessing
in the sorrow of this missing
my cheek still cold and lacking
the sweetest hugs silky sweet
your kisses soft caressing
now restless sleep has fallen
and the flakes are massing deep
I had to take some aspirin
from a headaches lurking sweep
today your friend has called me
like a mishap from a dream
said your eye is hurt somehow
and a physician was routine
she’d have a ride back and there
with auto accident between
and with left arm in a sling now
it was beyond my state of dream
especially when they told me
her eye was in surgery’s need
unknowing that tomorrow
it just might be all together

Speaking of ghosts, wouldn't you know here comes mine again...
