When all men speak no man hears -Kelly

The terrible blow came. Mrs Powell came over at 7:15 and told me that hospital was calling me. I knew what it meant. Mrs Powell took me over and she called Dean and Mary. They came and we found him gone, a very hard thing to accept but for us to bow to God’s will, our only thing to do.

We came home, the undertaker took over. I knew it would be that way, when he went to the hospital. The news flew over the neighborhood and one after another came to try to show their interest. Flowers arrived all the day and I felt I wasn’t entirely alone.

Dean sent telegrams to Chas and Ramona and during the day, all of them called me.
