The Old Fool is doing his wash, going shopping, and packing his bags for a trip to Pennsylvania. You may remember that there were three Krady sisters who married three Lehman boys. You may know that the three sisters slipped away from us in a five month time frame. Rhoda the first on January 3, then Ruth, followed by Naomi.
On Monday the extended family received the following email from Judy, the daughter of Paul and Naomi:
“My father, Paul J. Lehman, died peacefully in his sleep at 10:40 PM on Saturday, August 11. We had a small family gathering at Mellingers’ with a Burial service led by Pilgrim’s Mennonite friends on Sunday 12 noon. We are planning a Memorial Service for Dad on August 26 at 2 PM for those that want to come, at the Welcoming Place MCC in Akron, same place we had my Mother’s service. He was very ready to go and had said his good-byes on several of the last visits we had with him, having given his last wishes as well as his individual blessings to many of us, his family.”
Now, the first of the three Lehman boys, Paul J. Lehman, has left us. He and his wife, Naomi, elected not to be embalmed and so he was buried on the day following his death to be beside the remains of his Naomi in the Mellingers Mennonite Cemetery.
The Old Fool plans to travel to Pennsylvania with Rhoda’s sister, Lois, and her husband, Roy Hartzler. So there will be an approximate three-five day period in which The Old Fool will not be posting daily on the web page as heretofore.
