Former Grace College coach and former Grace Brethren pastor Lloyd Woolman recently moved back from Washington State to Grace Village Retirement Center in Winona Lake, Indiana. Almost immediately he faced some serious health issues. His son, Gary Woolman, lives in Fort Wayne and is visiting his father regularly. In response to some blog comments from an earlier post, Gary passes along this information. The mailing address for Grace Village is 337 Grace Village Drive, Winona Lake, IN 46590
This is wonderful to read these comments. I wanted to pass on some updates on my father. He fell in his apartment at Grace Village less than a week after moving into independent living. The diagnosis was a series of mini strokes.
He is currently in the health care wing of Grace Village. I visited him yesterday and he whispered the following that on a scale of 1-10, 10 being perfect, he is “1/2 of 1”. His grip is strong and he does recognize me and he remembered Chet Kammerer visiting him as well as Ron Henry and Jim Kessler. But he is confused as to the day of the week and doesn’t remember the physical or speech therapy sessions he has each morning. Please pray for him.
I read to him Carlene’s blog and that brought a BIG smile to his face. I plan on reading these to him when I visit him. He is in room 199 of Grace Village Health Care facility. It’s very small but I know he would appreciate cards and letters. He needs to be picked up in spirits!
Thanks in advance to any who read this and respond to my plea.
