Finding family through church

(Continued)

Not only has Chuy watched Brandon for a few hours, but overnight as well. For three seasons Chuy even walked the bases with Brandon so he could play in the Challenger’s (baseball) League in Pendleton. Watching Brandon at Special Olympics and a special bowling league helped fill Chuy’s already-busy schedule.

“I enjoy being around him,” he said. “I was a peer tutor with the special education kids, too. We are all God’s children so we’ve got to love one another.”

Somehow he also finds time for the Anderson Area Children’s Choir, the Senior Executive Council and SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions). To make ends meet for his family, he is working at Rozelle-Johnson Funeral Services and Ruby Tuesdays.

“He is very personable,” said Madewell. “He has this warmth and compassion about him. He’s a big, strong guy, but he is always available to everyone in the church to help with what they need.”

Looking ahead, Chuy is trying to acquire some scholarships and hopes to enroll for some core courses at Ivy Tech next year. With an eye on a nursing degree (with the high goal of nurse practitioner), he plans to transfer to Ball State or Indiana University when the finances are available.

“I’ve always been a people person,” he said. “I like to help people.”

  • Davis, Verna mug Verna Davis: Got a song stuck in your head? Just surrender Ever have a song stuck in your head? You find yourself thinking about the song at random times during the day. Or humming the song at odd times during the day. Or worse yet, when stopped at a traffic signal you find yourself belting it out only to realize that even with the windows rolled up, the person in the car beside you can hear your not-so-musical rendition.

  • Verna Davis: Asking and answering some rhetorical questions

    A rhetorical question implies its own answer so in order to make a point. Sometimes, rhetorical questions are meant to engage us in...well…umm…some sort of rhetoric. Just for the fun of it, let’s ask (and answer) some rhetorical questions.

  • Davis, Verna mug Verna Davis: Peace is worth fighting for Some people say they know how to find peace. We should “simply” follow our hearts, search for meaning in our lives, and fulfill our dreams. Sad to say, those things may bring us a bit of satisfaction, but they certainly don’t bring us peace.

  • Verna Davis: Seek peace by turning from evil and doing good There's something we all want: peace. World peace. Family peace. Personal peace. We yearn for peace, a feeling of freedom from commotion and antagonism, of harmony in our relationships, of lack of strife or dissension. What would we do to have peace in our lives?
