We got a call from Aunt Kaye and she was in hysterics. Tom, Paul’s cousin and “almost brother” was taken to the hospital over night because he could not breath. We called the hospital but they would not say anything without OK. We finally got to talk to Tom but he was “out of it”. He was in cardiac intensive care. We decided not to do anything yet (go to Stockton) and wait for an update.
Paul remembers growing up with Tom like it was yesterday and he is taking this pretty hard.
Ratchet forward 65 years…..
We went to Old Ranch for a little bit before going to the Phoenix Club to dance. Our minds were not on dancing needless to say.
