Moving & Dementia

Attiva Sign

Cookie and I will be moving to the east the end of June, and settling in Lewisville, Texas.  We’ve given our three months notice, here at the Parks, and have been slowly working out the details.  We will be living at the above apartment complex, (55 & older) beginning the 30th of June.  We are looking forward to moving closer to our family, family in this case being daughter Jen & Peter, and our grandkids, Ari and Will.  We’ll be just a few miles down the road, and we’re looking forward to trying to keep up with them!Attiva Lewisville ExteriorWe will be moving into a two bedroom apartment, on the ground floor of course, to accommodate the needs of our much pampered dogs.  It was a big decision, but we felt it was time to make the move.  All the details are falling into place, though not without some wrinkles.  Believe me, there’s nothing like moving with dementia.  Keeping track of all the details has been quite a challenge.  A snail’s pace would be a good description.

We’ve very much enjoyed living here in Midland-Odessa, and have made so many good friends.  We were blessed to be called to St. Nicholas Episcopal Church in Midland, and to have so many good memories.  God has blessed us richly, and we are so thankful for your friendships.  Rest assured that our prayers for each of you will continue, and for your  new priest, Mother Nancy.


God has been good to us, and we trust in his guidance, as we make our move the 29th of June.  We’ll be just down the highway, if y’all are feeling like a road trip.  My blogs will continue, as long as the dementia lets me write them.  I may even have to try writing a few blogs at poolside!Pool Shot

Thank you for your prayers, as Cookie and I make this somewhat challenging transition. It’s a lot of details for a guy that has dementia; Thankfully, Cookie has gotten skilled at catching my misdirection’s!
