I'd like to thank each and every one who has emailed about this little (big) thing we do each month at The Coloradolady. It has been a real inspiration and blessing to so many. It is an honor to be able to do this each month.
Here is the list for October. Thank you to all who submitted a name for this month. Remember if you have someone you'd like to add to the list, please shoot me an email.
Please add this special senior to the list!!
The first special senior is: TONY
Tony has been battling cancer since
last summer. In late July he met with some major challenges in his
fight. At this time he is holding his own and says he's feeling a bit
better. I'm sure he's feeling better than he did when he was admitted to
the hospital in late July. Tony will be 65 on his Birthday
4343 S TR 159
Tiffin, OH 44867
I would like to shower Tony with birthday cards. I think this would help make his day.
Tony would also appreciate it if you would keep him and I in your
thoughts and prayers over these next challenging weeks and hopefully
The second special senior is Iris Fransz.
Iris is recently living alone. she loves to garden. she is on limited income with little for extras.
BIRTHDAY: OCTOBER 16
7641 LINDEN CT
NEWARK CA 94560-2237
The third special senior is Jim Smith.
Jim will be 87 and has recently moved to an assisted-living facility. It is a struggle for him as he has always been so independent and neat but he is just not able to keep up anymore. His cat disappeared in the turmoil and even though he was tagged & chipped, the cat has not been found. So Dad is extra lonely right now.
BIRTHDAY: October 25
1010 Emerald Isle #122
Dallas, TX 75218
The fourth special senior is Bill Kline.
Bill will be 82 on his birthday. He has some medical problems, so he is home bound. He was a hard worker all of his life, so for him to be in the house most of the time is really hard for him. So I thought maybe some cards would cheer him up.
BIRTHDAY: October 29
113 Hemlock Dr.
Hanover, PA 17331
The fifth special senior is Hank Walker.
Hank will be 82 on his birthday. He and his wife are on limited incomes but still like to get out and see and do things even with his limited mobility. He has a great outlook on life and always has a smile on his face. In this family, there is always a little rivalry on who gets the most birthday cards, and well, he has always lost this race so many times. I think flooding his mailbox with cards would really be a fun thing...maybe he will win this years friendly competition and get the most cards.
BIRTHDAY: October 31
11010 First Beach Cove
Hernando, Mississippi 38632
Thank you in advance for supporting this senior endeavor here on my blog. It really is a blessing you could not even imagine when these seniors get a card and a dollar. Be SURE to come back to my First, Fifth Forever post on October 5th. You don't want to miss the feedback I got on our September birthday girl. It will break your heart and fill it up with joy all at the same time. Good stuff.
And if you can send a dollar in your card, that is great. If you can not do it...a card goes a long way in letting someone know they were remembered on their birthday!! Thanks again for all you do!!
