Beverly Bethel, one of our volunteers, remembers Michael Landwehr one of our neighbors, this way: He "...passed away on the 23rd of November. He fought a good fight. I will miss his voice and his sense of humor. He smiled when I saw him in ICU. . . .miss his voice at the main stage for Folk Festival for KXCI. Such a Great Man and Voice! Michael's sister will take care of final memorial in a couple of months time." We had served Michael several years. It was an honor, Michael.
Losing our neighbors to death is always sad but uplifting as we have always been left with an indelible memory of them and their lives. However, we bade adieu to Waneta Phinney recently as she moved to another city to be closer to her only daughter. She was sad. We were sad after having served her and her husband, Hal, for a few years. Hal died this year and life now transitions for Waneta. We salute her and so many other who live their lives with struggles and joys and changes. Again, we learn from their resilience.
