Care Person Report April 2018

CARE PERSON UPDATE       April 1, 2018                            by Susan Buelow

Hello Dogwood Friends,
Just wanted to update all of you on members and friends of the Dogwood family. 
Brenda Berry, daughter of Barbara and Bobby Dyke passed away March 1st in Huntington Beach, CA after a long 2 and one half year battle with cancer. Barbara, Bobby, and their son and daughter-in-law flew to CA for a Memorial/Celebration of Life on March 18th. Jim spoke with Barbara today. She said the trip and Celebration were hard on them, but all went OK and the Celebration on the beach with the surfers was very special. Bobby and Barbara are now back home and getting ready to sell their home and move to a smaller place which they bought in December. A card of sympathy was sent to the Dyke family, and a donation from Dogwood will be sent to a charity of their choice.
Butch & Liz Jones
Liz Jones passed away on March 16 in Titusville, FL. She had recently been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Jim spoke with Butch today and he is hanging in there. On March 31st, there was a Celebration of Life for Liz at the TGO pavilion. Butch said that 85 people including family and friends attended the celebration and that it was very nice. Butch is planning on staying in Florida, but is planning a trip to VA in May, and hopes to get together with friends while here. A card of sympathy was sent to the Jones family, and a donation from Dogwood will be sent to the Brevard County ASPCA.
Jean Franklin passed away in early February. Jean and her husband Buddy, who passed earlier, were former Dogwood members who were well liked by all who met them. Some of the old-timers may remember their converted bus with the rose on the side.
Please keep our lost members and friends and their families, along with others who are sick and suffering, in your thoughts and prayers.
