John sends us this update about what he is doing these days: “I have lived and worked in Charlotte, NC the last twelve years. I am a corporate accountant at Lowe’s Home Improvement headquarters. I live in a suburb, yet I do make it downtown every Saturday. There I volunteer at a children’s hospital facilitating games and activities for patients and families. I have been doing this since 1984, when I got trained at Riley Hospital. I keep the faith at a nice, old relic of a church in the heart of downtown.” Thank you, John, for your news!
