LAH offers its deepest condolences to Hugh and Fosi Burritt who lost their beloved Warner in July. Warner, 92, was the patriarch of the family. He and Fosi had celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary a year or two ago. They were all invested in the movie, performance business and Warner's voice was his gift. What a man of words and of great vocal chords. We will also miss him and his gentle Canadian humor.
We also recognize that our volunteers and our senior neighbors suffer similar losses. We have to grieve with them. Electra Brashears and her daughter survived a terrible house fire this summer, but her grandson, mid 20s, did not. Gigi Soike's son died last year. She says, in her French accent, " A Mother's loss of a child, even an adult child, is very difficult." Our volunteers have also suffered their own losses: Bruce, whose only brother died a couple of months ago; Kim, whose Dad died last week in hospice; and Scott, whose Mother passed away recently. Lastly, Alan's brother died this summer. You were all most kind in sharing my mom's death with our family. Continuing to recognize our oneness in such losses adds to our serving one another here in life. Thank you all for striving onward!
Busy September for LAH has included: The Senior Canteen Field Trip to the Pioneer Historical Museum 9/20; our Greek Festival Parking Lot, four days and nights, 9/22-25; the Mountain Avenue Church of Christ and Hedrick Acres Neighborhood Association Block Party Friday 9/23; and the Ward III Shredit Event which benefitted LAH on 9/24. What a lot of publicity and public contact our volunteers mustered up! Many Thanks to All of you!
