Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2018

Spoke to Zelda and she would like to wish everyone the Merriest of Christmas' and Best Wishes for a Happy Healthy 2018.

She can no longer write and has had the facility's activity write and address just a few Christmas cards for her, but her time is limited and there's just no way she can write one for all the friends Zelda has here.

So...she has asked me to convey her wishes to each of you.

Zelda Update

Just spoke with Zelda, She has had "another" stroke and has been in the hospital. Then, once she began to rally round from that - she got really sick with something else (she's not sure what, or at least couldn't think of what it was.) She has trouble trying to think of the correct words and gets very frustrated.

Her BIL passed away and Zelda's sister is having a terrible time trying to cope - they were together 60+ years.

I asked Zee if she could send/receive a text and she said No, she couldn't. She has a small cell phone, provided by Medicaid and not a smart phone. She is only allotted a specific amount of minutes each month for talking on the phone.

She told me if I sent her some money, she was going to have someone go get her some Honey Nut Cheerios. LOL She likes those and the nursing home never has them. I had already sent her a Christmas card with $50, so that should keep her stocked with Honey Nut Cheerios for a while. I also have a "Care Package" almost ready to send.

She sends love and best wishes for a Merry Christmas to everyone. She apologizes in advance, for not being able to write and wish each of you in person.

Zelda's address and phone number.

She would appreciate so much a Christmas card, short note or a small gift.

Zelda's address

I was just doing cards and letter this week and went to check that Zelda's address had not change. I am glad i did my prayers go out for her and for so many others in this group. this seems to be a bad year for us. we must hold each other during this time of need. that said can someone post Zelda's new address as soon as they know.

you know guys if there are others out there that could use a letter, card, postcard be free to post an address. I think there is a few of us out there that would be more then happy to reach out.
thanks guys

Update on Zelda

I got a call today.....
Zelda had a stroke on the 9th and they rushed her to the hospital, gave her that "stroke shot" and saved her.
She is back at the nursing home now and doing much better.
Please remember her in your prayers.

Zelda said she misplaced your phone number. So could you please give her a call.
