We didn’t realize how long the recovery period would be and he’s finding symptoms that others described just now surfacing. Steve and Merry Ablott celebrated Easter with a family gathering at their home on Monday after Easter. Those attending were Kevin and Carissa Uhrmacher, Cale, Xander and Emilia; Brad and Amanda Ablott and Taylor and Isaac. Don and Barb McCartney of Nelson were visitors in the Darrel McCartney home several times during the last few weeks. Last Saturday, he even brought his lawnmower and helped Darrel get the lawn mowed.
