“Chuck Ferris has left the building”.
Reading his Blog I got a new view of ‘Old Folks Home’. Chuck was happy. Seldom did his folks visit, but he handled it admirably. He had lived his life, now was making the best of the last of it. I miss “Chuck”.
Chuck would say: REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR! (Dec 7th)
I think the only thing I can say is I hope I have a good outlook on life after I or my kids put me somewhere. I would rather die in my sleep, but we do not always get our druthers.
Ray Campbell. Successful preacher, story teller and chalk artist. Ray got old. I visited him in the Stanley Total Living Center, Stanley NC. IT is an old folks home, but not like I remembered. It did not smell of urine, and it was clean. Ray, my mentor, did not know me, As he so succinctly put it, ‘I’ll kick your ass!”
I countered, “This is Jack, you wouldn’t do that would you?”
His answer was, “You bet your ass I will.”
Before Ray was a preacher he was a prize fighter. His mind had reverted back. But As a kid I remember him saying, ‘you think jumping rope is sissy, let’s see you do this’. He would do that boxer stuff three times under your feet cross his arms and all that stuff. It fascinated us boys.
He died there and I do not feel bad at his family for placing him there. He got so he could not take care of himself. But he was strong and in shape at 80, he could have hurt someone and not meant to. Stanley Total Living Center is a nice clean place.
