So, progress reports come slowly. That’s the nature of the medical community. In a few weeks, Bud will have another set of scans to update the report.
In the meantime, it is basically “business as usual.” Bud returned to Wellsville Central School as a bus driver. He has only ever been a morning driver. This has been a great schedule for him because he is a morning person by nature and that time of day is rarely interrupted by other events. We believe it has been a help to the school as well. Have you heard how difficult it is to get drivers? If you have the right license, maybe you’d like to help out a school.
Anyway, he passed the required physical and he also successfully completed the safety test, so he is back on the bus!
Bud has returned to construction work as well. We have an upstairs office that he is working on. Most recently, he has spent time at our church helping to tape the drywall. This is a job that he does not like to do, but he is good at it. So, he has volunteered there a bit.
And, of course, you see him around town visiting with various people. If you see him, stop and say “Hi!” He’s always glad to take a few minutes and shoot the breeze. Last night, we celebrated my mother’s birthday at Beef Haus. And we saw several of you there! What a great time to connect!
So, everything is running as it should.
We know that you have choices in Wellsville for funeral services. We are always honored to serve your family. We are quite capable of assisting you through this very difficult time. We have recently added an amazing space that offers a level of service and comfort never before seen in the Wellsville area. Many people look at this space and believe that we are no longer affordable. This is simply not so. We have not raised our prices since opening the doors on the Riverside Drive facility. And our prices match or are lower than other funeral homes nearby.
It is because of God’s provision, your continued confidence, and a little bit of help from Steuben Trust Bank that this addition happened. We prayed that we would be able to “pay-as-we-go” and that was almost possible. So, that is why we don’t have to pass building costs on to families who choose us.
We began this section of the blog, the cancer journey, so that we could be transparent with our community; so that you would know what is happening. The best places to get information are from this site, our Facebook page, or just give Bud a call.
The propagated rumors that say any differently than what you’ve read here or had us tell you are just not true. We welcome your questions and concerns. We also invite you to set a rumor straight if you hear something contrary.
It’s just business as usual.
