Each week, Sandra and David Eppinger get together with Sandra’s sister for a game of Scrabble. Competing in a game like Scrabble requires knowing thousands of words. Strong spelling and lexical creativity will also give you an edge.
Yet one day, as Sandra, 75, showered before her sister arrived for the game, all her words suddenly disappeared.
When Karen Holbrook of Farber, Mo., realized she was experiencing the symptoms of a stroke, there was only one place she wanted to be: “I had to take a helicopter here, and I told them, ‘You get this in the air, and you land at Boone. If you land anywhere in-between, I won’t ride with you anymore.’”
Down in his basement workshop, Russ Haerer holds his latest project. It’s a dovetail joint for a cabinet drawer.
It looks beautiful — but Russ isn’t satisfied.
My grandmother had a stroke and was on the Boone neurology floor. I just wanted to thank the wonderful nurses that took care of her.
First of all, I would like to apologize for the delay in getting this note out to the appropriate person. However, it has been a very difficult time for our family and we can’t move forward with the grieving process without thanking a very special employee at Boone Hospital.
