Mr. Budd Saunders. Budd is a Korean War Vet, He and his wife, Nancy, live east of Elkins. Budd and Nancy are very well educated. Budd is just short of a PHD (He said he didn’t want to write the dissertation to complete it). Budd was a lecturer on Western Civilization and History. He wrote a column in a local paper for 10 years. Nancy has an Ivy league Education, her grandfather was a Southern Baptist Minister, her father was George A. Miller, thought to be one of the fathers of Cognitive Science and a published author of several books. Nancy’s mom wrote children’s books and Nancy herself is a published author.

 

Budd and Nancy had one daughter who passed away from complications, at an early age. They have a Great Pyrenees who is a child to them.

 

Budd is 82, he had an accident some years ago that left him with a broken back, he walks looking at the ground and he is also on Oxygen. Nancy has RA and is also being treated for cancer.

 

They live in an old home, the original part of which is deeded from 1839. Budd and Nancy didn’t ask for help, so they are very thankful for anything they get.

 

Here’s what they said would help them out;

 

Clean the house

Vacuum and shampoo the carpet

Their Bed needs adjusted (I would like to see if we could get them a new bed, but I need to verify first)

Un jam their paper shredder

Move some plants out side

Clean up brushes, tree and weeds outside.

Some large items outside he needs put to the curb for pick up

Re stain the ramp by the front door

Some computer help

 

If you would be interested in helping with this, reply back to this email, by 12 June 2017. This will give us time to make any adjustments and plan accordingly. If you have a group you would like to get involved please let me know. I’m going to plan this for 17 June 2017. From 7 to 12. If you can help, we will have a quick meeting at 7:00 am, the day of, in the south parking lot of Cross Church in Springdale. It is a 45 minute drive from there. I’m sure we can easily get together the things we would need to clean, cut and help them out.
