We honor members, friends, visitors
Our thoughts and good wishes continue to be with: Adrienne Hester, and family on the death of our long time church member and friend, Jim Hester, who died on January 12th. Adrienne, son David and daughter-in-law Kathy were with us on January 17th. A memorial service will be held at UUCB at a date that is to be determined later. Rosemary Lohndorf’s husband Greg is recovering well from his second knee replacement, last month.
Congratulations, Good Luck, Blessings, and Thanks To: Kymber Anderson, granddaughter of Lois & Dan, who was a front door greeter twice in January. The second time she joined Rev. Barbara Molfese giving us two generations! The first Sunday she was solo and did a fine job. We now have large print hymnals — ask the ushers if you need one.
Random Thoughts: With the new year I have been blessed by several of YOU signing up to do coffee set-up, and to bring food as well as ushering without being asked! Equally important is coffee clean-up which I would also like you to sign-up for — not so glamorous, but very necessary. Currently we have two angels who cover Monday morning by unloading the dishwasher, and running a second load. As we are growing we need all hands on deck to make Sundaymorning meaningful for all of us.
I witnessed a heartfelt sight last month watching Rowan Anderson, age four, and a member of a regular visiting family standing in front of the recycle containers looking at the examples and correctly taking care of his items. We are making a difference in our world to be green!
Some information that I promised last month is that Fred will be having the first of two surgeries, early this month, to repair the problem he has had with a persistent infection. He/I have been dealing with it for the past 18 months. The source of the infection is traceable back to his original surgery in 2012 (on average, there is about a .25% risk for everyone having a joint replaced). The first surgery will remove the original prosthesis, and put in a spacer for 6-7 weeks, and then a second surgery to put in a brand new hip joint. The plan is that by May, he will be totally healed and ready to boogie!
With Love & Care, Barb
