July News on Bill Toole


A while back, Bill was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia, and on July 18th a memory care room came available from the waiting list for the Southern Utah Veterans Home.  He is now cared for at SUVH in Room 401.  His cell phone, which might not always be on, is 925-216-8964.

My cell phone is 925-216-8741.  Just be aware that the cell phone coverage is spotty out there near the SUVH.  Bill has a southern exposure room, so our coverage is a little better.  He looks out over the construction site for the new medical center that is being built next to SUVH.

This was an extremely emotional and difficult transition for me, but once again my Marine is protecting me, helping to make the decision to enter the nursing home when he realized I was struggling with his round-the-clock care.  I hate the separations in the evenings, but we're adjusting.  Other than a couple of really bad days after the prescription of a medication that didn't agree with him, it has been a transition that we both knew was necessary.  Our children are so supportive, flying out to visit and assist, plus purchasing a new HP ProBook for me to use while at SUVH to keep up with our blogs and release some tension with genealogy when I can.

Bill is treated so well there.  They know his part in the formation of the SUVH in Ivins and have bent over backwards to assist.  I believe they do so for everyone, but we are blessed by their kind care.
Here is Bill at the ground breaking of SUVH, so proud to have been a part of bringing it to Washington County.



And here is the staff welcoming him to SUVH on July 18th.

Late morning, mid-afternoon visitors welcome.  Thank you for your interest - and prayers for both of us during our transition.

Dennis Cory Honors on June 24



Dennis Cory’s memorial service is set for Friday, June 24, 11:00 a.m. at the Catholic Church, 261 W 200 N in St. George.  He has been cremated and Liz would like Utah Dixie Detachment #1270 to give full honors outside the church right after the Mass.  There will be a reception in the church hall after the detail is complete.  Let’s all turn out for a former Commandant of our Detachment.  Ceremonial dress, red polo, or funeral attire – just be there to honor a former Utah Dixie Detachment Commandant. For those with ceremonial attire, please let Larry Mineer know if you can participate in the honors.
