I'm not sure how many remember adagio (my friend Ralph) but after his being AWOL in my life, yesterday he found me. (Those of you who remember Ralph might remember his quirky poetry inspired by his job as a cab driver, but in my opinion, his best was the love poetry inspired by his now deceased wife, Leah.)
Leah took very good care of Ralph, so after her death he was pretty lost, and now he faces another challenge since he has suffered a stroke. He has paralysis on his left side, and is in a local rehab center learning how to walk and use his left arm and hand again.
I'm happy to report that his speech is unimpaired, and he seemed to be sharper in the mind than he has been since Leah's death.
Please pray for our poet friend, if you're the praying kind. I'll be checking in on him as soon as I am able. He sends his love.
