We are blessed to live near Athens, GA. We are blessed to have just about everything you would ever want. One of the restaurants I would like to see come to Athens is PF. Chang's. I love good Chinese food, and to me, P.F. Changs has the best in the known world.
Melvine's sharpness of mind along with her joy and wit have all come back. In addition, God has given her renewed strength. She is courageous and is reaching out to bless others.
Melvine desired to go with me to honor the memory and legacy of John Joseph Cato at the viewing and memorial service at Pruitt Funeral Home in Royston, GA. It was good to see and visit with Jane, John Joe's wife, now a widow, as well as their girls, Wanda, Cynthia, and Robin. Each of John Joe's daughters participated in the memorial service. Of course, Cynthia played for the memorial service as her husband Robert Golden led us in congregational singing. Wanda's husband, David Brett was in charge of the service and did a masterful job in doing so. He had written out what he wanted to say and he said it well. He covered all the bases and lifted our spirits. Wanda read the familiar Scripture of comfort and hope recorded in John 14. Robin wrote a superb tribute to her father. She is a lawyer and is accustomed to speaking and writing. One of the things that Robin mentioned was her father's work ethic. He insisted that you do it right the first time, and he wanted you to do it his way, the right way.
I learned that Ruth Cato Turton is bed fast and could not be present. I really missed her. I have known Ruth and John Joe all of my life. My sister, Mary Evelyn, and I used to play with them when we were children. I am confident that I have known John Joe Cato longer than anyone present for the memorial service.
Melvine looked like a million dollars. She dared to let everyone seen her full head of white hair growing back in all its glory. Although it is short, she looks absolutely beautiful. She always dresses sharply. She has lots a lot of weight and that is in itself no doubt given her added strength, and we noticed she does not get short of breath when she walks. Her balance is good as well.
The nurse practitioner for Melvine's heart doctor, Alex, called on Tuesday and told me that Melvine's blood work showed a lack of Magnesium. From my study of the heart muscle for several years I know that the heart needs magnesium. Tomatoes and roses love magnesium sulfate, too. So, for a few days I have been instructed to double up on magnesium. I am in charge of Melvine's medication.
Jeanette Phillips came early to our home to help Melvine with her makeup. She agreed that Melvine should not wear a wig, and of course that made her head cooler. Melvine gets involved in our conversations and is not afraid to inject her views on any matter. Jeanette is a marvelous driver and drove us in my 2010 Lincoln Continental Towncar. I am trusting God to help me sell it and purchase a CRV that Melvine and I can easily get in and out of. I want one that gets excellent gas mileage. I love the Lincoln. My problem is getting in and out of it. My legs and feet don't move like they used to.
We are so grateful to God for His manifold blessings. He offers strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow with blessings in abundance. What a mighty God we serve.
Please continue to pray for Melvine and me. I need your prayers for my health too.
