Further Shore Late Spring News ~
Happiness is a calm, gentle breeze! The winds have been howling in Flagstaff and all across the USA as we made our way to upstate New York to celebrate my mom’s 80th birthday. Lake Ontario has been making a big splash almost daily since we arrived. The beauty here is, as always, amazing. It is hard to believe we are half way through our visit already. We will be going off line again June 2nd and arriving back in Flagstaff on June 7th. I have been reflecting on the winds of change and hope that all your transitions are happening with ease and grace. Best, Aleia
In Memory ~
- Milorad (Misha) Vlahovich passed on April 10th at age 94. He is survived by his wife, step son and son. He is a WWII survivor, having fought against communism in Yugoslavia. He would inspire his son with this Serbian saying “Courageously forward, victory is ours.”
- Dr. Edward Speth who passed into spirit on April 15th. Dr. and Mrs. Cornelia Speth were dear friends of Wayne’s House. The large spruce tree on the north side of the yard are dedicated to their generosity and care.
