President George H.W. Bush
Saddened today as I woke to the news that President George H.W. Bush had passed away. He was a good man and when he was president I was so moved by his State of the Union Address. I went to bed that night thinking what it would be like to be a soldier as the Persian Gulf War was going on. I had visions of a soldier carrying his weapon and saw his boots and put myself in them. The next day I wrote a poem called, Lone Soldier, and mailed it to President Bush with a letter of support. To my surprise I received a letter from him that I will post here, and my local newspaper did a story about it after I called them to ask them if they have heard from others receiving the same letter, and they hadn't.
I knew this day was coming as did the whole nation after he had many trips to the hospital and at age 94 he made the decision he didn't want more trips to the hospital. My letter and newspaper article are posted below.
My letter from President Bush
Article in my local Woonsocket Call newspaper
includes my poem, "Lone Soldier."
I sent this newspaper article to Barbara Bush in case she was collecting such things for memory's sake. She responded with a short note that I will cherish forever along with the President's letter. I have special memories of President and Mrs. Bush. May they be joined once again in a heavenly home prepared for them by their God.
Rest In Peace

Route 44 Music Series
September 20, 2018
JD Entering from rear of room singing -
I was in the back row.
JD singing first song
He looks great - almost 77
He told many stories between songs -
He told jokes and was very open about his life.
He still has his voice and hasn't missed a beat!
Me & JD - Giving him the tote bag of gifts - Bag had his photo printed from one I took of him 50 years ago at the Warwick Musical Theater. We talked - I said that was taken in the late 60's as he looked at his old picture and he replied that he was in California in the late 60's. So maybe it was a little sooner...or later...dunno.
JD was signing a CD for me in exchange for the gifts I gave him. I offered my Tee-shirt to sign but he said he couldn't. He did thank me with a kiss and looks good in my "rose quartz" shade of pink lipstick! :)
I was laughing but don't remember about what. :)
Our hair matches except mine is naturally curly! :)
He is still handsome and I'll always remember this evening! I gave him a big hug after the show when he walked by to the back table...so my 50 year dream came true. I got my hug and kiss from John Davidson - it was worth waiting 50 years for!! :)
(Oh, I wasn't able to lose the pounds I wanted to before this night, therefore not happy with myself in pictures. Back on the diet...maybe next time!)
