A Tribute to Tony

A Tribute to Tony

 


From Carolyn Moon

Angels to Guide Us My only son, Tony, was born Down Syndrome and a bad heart. Both sides of the family rejected him and I kept him at home and cared for him the 27 years he lived. I worked full time and had 3 daughters; his father couldn't love him in any way so we divorced. When Downs children are born, there's no way to tell how much they can learn; it's a waiting game to see. Tony was able to walk, talk, dress himself, take care of himself, entertain himself, loved movies (especially Blazing Saddles and Wizard of Oz) and shopping, theme parks like King's Island, Batman, Spiderman, Star Wars movies, Superman & McDonald's Big Macs. Eventually his heart gave out and he died peacefully in his sleep in 1985. I still love and miss him everyday and treasure the gift I was given to have him in my life. He enriched my life beyond words and it's sad that his family never gave him a chance.

~Carolyn, Tony's mom

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
