We send our get-well wishes and prayers to Bill Penuel and Elizabeth Figgs, who are patients in the Chandler Care Nursing in Delmar Del. We also send good wishes to Bob McNelia, who is a patient at Atria Nursing Home in Salisbury, Md.

We send our deepest sympathy and prayers to Scott and Monica Shubert and family in the death of his grandfather, Ralph “Pop” Shubert. When Mr. Shubert traveled from Pennsylvania for his visits on weekends, he enjoyed attending the Catholic Church in Delmar.

We also send our sympathy and prayers to the family and friends of Bonnie Litchford. Bonnie passed away Sunday, Feb. 9.

Peggy and Donald Morris spent a few days with their son, Scott, while he underwent knee operation. The surgery was a success. He is now home recuperating.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I thought the snow on Sunday was beautiful. My husband and I enjoyed pulling our grandsons on their sled and just playing in the snow. This is when you realize you aren’t as young as you think you are.

We wish the following people very happy birthdays: Feb. 19, Pauline Willey; Feb. 22, George Simons; Feb. 24, Corrine Lambden.

Thought for the week: “The only man who makes no mistakes is the man who never does anything. Do not be afraid to make mistakes providing you do not make the same one twice.” Theodore Roosevelt
