For a number of years I had been visiting Jean Bender every now and then. I would just stop in and sit for a spell. This past May she was taken to the hospital due to complications and after recovery she is in a nursing home.
In the meantime homeless people took over and made themselves at home. That is until a week ago when they were forced to leave and forbidden by law to return. Today a number of Tom’s friends came to help with the cleaning up.
Below are before and after pictures, posted with permission. I stopped in this morning when I saw the gate open and took some pictures.
