Good morning everyone. I thought I'd update you all on what's been going on.
Mike's mom passed away this weekend,April 4th. As you may remember I lost Mike, my boyfriend, on Feb 20th after a very short bought with heart and lung cancer. His mom was 92 years old just having a birthday on March 29th. They are together now. She was so upset the day she saw him in hospice stating over and over again she just wished he would open up his eyes and talk to her. Her funeral is today.
I'm still working. I'm considered an essential employee. Our agency is open 24/7 and provide mental health services as well as information & referral services (that is the part I do). We have opened our phone lines as a corona hotline, so to speak, and we are giving local referrals to food pantries, rent assistance, utility assistance things of that nature. I'm happy to be there doing it as well. It's in my blood. 30 years + now doing this type of service for the community.
Our county currently is the only county in the Northwest Ohio region that has not had anyone test positive for corona. We are the little green area beside Defiance, Fulton and Williams County in the upper left hand corner. I'm very picky about how I do things now and I'm sure many of us will continue to be this way and not let our guards down so quickly. I pray for those families that have lost loved ones now, who can't even attend their funerals. I think besides losing someone that has to be even a more devastating blow. How do they find closure?
That's about it for now. I pray you all have a safe and happy day. Enjoy the weather. We have beautiful sunshine here right now after a stormy night that had a beautiful pink moon.
