Hi from AZ. . .next time I visit my friends in Waycross, I'll go by and visit him. We have a memorial bench at WCU in Cullowhee, N.C., for my son's mother. It is some comfort to him to 'visit' his Mom there. thanks for posting. best, Craig.

Lily and I are in Brunswick, and will be going by Nunnaly House sometime this next week.

Today is Doug's birthday, always angst-ridden for him because his Father died on the 15th, the day before his 4th.

This year, they are together.

Such a wonderful tribute. I think of you often and look for your post. I would like to think I could have a tiny amount of your strength if this happened to me and mine. It is hard to believe it has been a year already. God Bless.

Thank you. All of you.

It would have been a much different experience without the support and love of this amazing community. Could not have done it without you.

Coming up next......a photo of the garden where the bench will reside.

It would be wonderful if it arrived before I moved on, but Faithworks has promised to send a photo if it hasn't.

Have been to Nunnally House, near the hospital in Brunswick, GA......as beautiful as a very nice hotel, with 40 rooms.

A wing of 15 is set aside for cancer patients, 8 for families of patients in critical care, the remainder for residents and interns who come and go thru the year. All the rooms can be used however they are needed, the wing for cancer patients receiving chemotherapy is just separate.

Absolutely lovely, and made possible thru a gift from one person and his family. A beautiful, paved, outdoor patio, with tables, chairs and sunbrellas, as well as the expanded gardens and landscaping, are courtesy of another, single donor. Any who want to read more and/or see photos can find this online.

This photo is of the gardens, where you can see walkways laid out but not yet completed. Doug's memorial bench will go somewhere behind that loop, under those enormous live oaks.

A lovely spot. He would be pleased.

I also visited for a bit with Dr. Wright Culpepper, an oak of another sort. What a kind, good, and dear man.

It was difficult being back there, but now we have a visual of where the bench will be. I wanted that.

I know it was hard for you to be there, Maggie. You have been on my mind quite a bit and I have been sending up prayers for strength for you.

The bench will look perfect under those beautiful oaks. A wonderful place for people to sit in contemplation.

Thank you, Page.

The hedges surrounding this in-the-works area are going to be allowed to grow tall to provide some seclusion and privacy, I was told, and linked by a paved path to the beautiful patio already in place. It will be a lovely, peaceful spot for a bench.

The original house, where we stayed, was a simple, older home near the hospital, which was purchased with funds leftover from those raised for a cancer patient who did not survive.

Its primary function was to house chemo patients during the week, many of whom were impoverished, lived some distance from the hospital, and were foregoing chemotherapy because they couldn't afford gas costs to and from the hospital. Sheltering family of critical care patients there could only be done if one of the four bedrooms were free.

Nunnally House can now handle everything, and is just a block from the hospital.

I had a larger, more expansive and inclusive photo, but had to cut it down to get it to post right side up.

This thread is 2 months old and I'm just now finding it. Been to busy with tax season to read forums much. That looks like lovely area to take a break and sit awhile. I think Doug would love it. The stranded travelers fund is perfect. Doug was so kind and sweet I can just see him giving gas or food money to folks in need.

Given that the primary purpose of Nunnally House is to care for people in personal or family medical crisis, I hope the bench will be oft-used and its presence provide much comfort.

The walkway you can see laid out in the last photo is in the shape of a cancer ribbon.

The bench should be arriving in the next week or two, and Faithworks promises a photo.

Very, very nice indeed!

The bench is in.

It is being assembled, and I am told I will have a photo at least by tomorrow.

Perfect timing.


Maggie
