Happy Father's Day!

My husband, Gordy, moved to Assisted Living in October 2019. I couldn’t meet his many medical needs while the senior campus he moved to could very well. Our separation has been difficult and became more difficult when the pandemic arrived. Lockdowns meant he couldn’t leave the building, and I couldn’t visit. To take the place of physical visits, we keep a consistent schedule of phone calls: we each have a current copy of Hope-Full Living, and we read it together over the phone. Each night we pray for the needs of family and friends, and then pray the Lord’s Prayer together. We’ve also done FaceTime on his birthday and on Father’s Day. We usually watch football and baseball games at the same time and cheer together over the phone!
