Stewart and I worshipped at the First United Methodist Church in Garden City, KS, his home of 65 years. I married Rob Street in this beautiful sanctuary 32 years ago. Stewart’s Builders Sunday School Class had reduced in size and consisted of nonagenerians where canes, walkers and electric carts abound. As we we’re leaving the church, Stewart’s walker got away from his outstretched hand, accelerated down the fifty foot ramp and eventually overturned and threw the contents of his walker bag, which included his beloved trumpet, on to busy Main Street. Only in Garden City! Note to Stewart: Wheelchair ramps double as an amusement ride for the geriatric set. Proceed with caution.
