A garden well tended ... a life well lived ... in this week's column I would like to honor the memory of the strong, kind man who had made my life so happy for the last 47 years. I was just seventeen when I met Richard, on a warm autumn evening while cruising the avenue with friends. It didn't take long for us to become the very best of friends. One month later our engagement was announced during a lovely Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve at his parent's home. I turned eighteen in January, he would be nineteen that ...

We have sad news this week in Valley Home. Richard Mullins, husband of Winnie, passed away suddenly on Saturday afternoon at their home. He was a strong, quiet man with a great sense of humor who loved and cared for his family. The family wants to thank all those who helped: ditch tenders, paramedics, firefighters and sheriff. Richard will be sorely missed.

Over 100 years of Valley Home School tradition. As we look into the eyes of our soon to be Valley Home graduates we catch a glimpse of a bright and promising future! Many, many new and exciting events are unfolding in their young lives. It seems only yesterday they entered kindergarten ... lunch pails packed, new shoes tied by loving hands, a cool backpack, the lure of a new pack of crayons and the sight of a tiny desk with their very own name ... This would help convince them to slowly let go of the hand they held so tight! Our ...

The blessings of family ... As with most of you, on Easter we gathered with our families. For most it was a day of bright colorful egg hunts and visits with those we hold dear. For my family the holiday held many blessings. Strong family ties, including friends that care and share those family ties. Although this Easter had some bittersweet moments throughout the day, those family ties were strong and together we enjoyed a truly blessed Easter Day.

I have always known Valley Home is a very special place to live. This week our family has once again been surrounded by the most loving, kindest and caring extended family we could ask for, as we suffered the loss of my younger brother, Ed Keaster this week. It all happened so quickly that before we knew it, we were at Stanford Hospital in Palo Alto praying for a miracle. Although we did not get the miracle we were asking for that day, it turns out the miracle we did get was that we had my wonderful brother for 61 ...
