Stone Mountain House; Visit with Janice Strang

On Saturday, May 16, 2015, we drove down to our house in Stone Mountain to look at it and make sure everything was still OK with it.  Leon met us there and we all walked around the property.  Evidently the grass and bushes had grown up a lot and Leon mowed and trimmed the bushes all around the property.  One shock was that someone chopped down one of our trees in the back yard.  Leon said the leaves were still green when he was there earlier, so it had just happened within the past week.  Not happy about that, but nothing we can do about now.  We also discovered that someone broke in and stole the safe that we had concreted into the floor underneath the basement steps.

Frances Kerch - Laid to Rest

On May 12, 2015, Frances Kerch (Jim's Mom) passed away.  She appeared to be in good condition on Mother's Day.  Jack went to visit her, and she also talked with Jim, Jacklyn, and other people. On Tuesday morning she fell in the bathroom.  Jack found her there and helped her back into her chair and said he would come back later that afternoon to check on her.  The staff brought her lunch and a friend of hers stopped by during lunch only to find her in an unresponsive state.  The staff came and discovered that she had passed away.
