Community Member Victim of Covid-19

Image may contain: 1 person, eyeglasses and closeupIt is with great sorrow that I write of the death of Larry Lindsay. He and his wife Jo contracted covid-19 and had been bravely fighting to recover. On Wednesday, Larry was admitted to Banner Baywood in Mesa where he was intubated. This morning he lost his battle.

Larry and Jo have lived in the Village since 2006. Larry was a member of the Board of Directors for several years. He and Jo were in charge of lot sales in the Village for years. They worked tirelessly on two separate occasions coordinating activities for Village residents. They made many friends during the time they spent summers in the Village. We will all miss Larry’s smiling face.

The following was posted on Jo’s Facebook page:

Make no mistake. When loved ones are removed from your home by ambulance because the virus has hit them hard, you are not going to be able to follow them there, sit by their hospital bed and hold their hand.You are not going to be able to pop in at 7:00 pm for visiting hours. They are going to have no one other than exhausted and brave hospital staff to see them through days or weeks of barely breathing through a ventilator until they either die or recover. They are not going to be well enough to text you.

You are not going to be able to phone the ward to check in on them regularly (staff will be too busy for that). During that time, they will be completely alone, while you sit at home waiting to hear whether they have made it through.
Imagine that person is someone you love dearly. Because it’s going to be a reality for many in the coming weeks.

And if that person in hospital happens to be you, going through that ordeal completely alone, it would be nothing less than terrifying.

Please stay home and only go out if absolutely necessary. Social distancing is imperative right now for your family and mine.

Unfortunately this happed to me today – I lost the love of my life

Be safe – take care of each other and be grateful for everyday you have …. our girls- Tara & Tracy have been my live savers as I too have suffered with this Covid 19 … Tara has been with me as she has also had Covid 19 but is now immune – poor Tracy can only visit thru window, FaceTime. … no real hugs …. which we want to do

I fortunately am getting better but still in quarantine – so stay safe everyone – never in my wildest dream thought we would a statistic .

Please honor Larry by practicing social distancing and taking this unprecedented crisis seriously. No one wants to think that this could happen to them or someone they love.

The Board postponed approval until further study could be conducted to determine exactly what would be needed. Mountain Comfort Heating & Cooling will begin installation on Monday morning.

The net will be set up in the cul-de-sac on Elk Trot Loop in Mountain Lodges on Sunday afternoons from 4-6 pm depending on weather.

2018 Activities Committee Chair – Mike Palma

Image result for food and fun imagesThe Village Activities Committee Chair has been vacant since the end of last season and therefore we will have no staffed Activities Committee this year. However, Mike Palma has volunteered to chair the Activities Committee for the upcoming 2018 season.

In the past, activities have been proposed and driven by our Activities Committee. We had some great times and wonderful memories.  This year we are embarking on a different path. Each member of our community can come forth with their ideas/plans for this summer’s activities.  These ideas will be reviewed covering content and to ensure they are targeted for our community, selecting those with the greatest chance for success.  Each proposed activity must include a complete description of the activity and associated cost; and if required, the names of those who will participate in that activity.  Upon acceptance by the Activities Committee Chair, a date for the activity will be set up and an announcement will be posted.  Financial assistance to cover the difference between what members pay to attend the activity and the remainder will be arranged at this time as well.  So, get your groups together and send your suggested ideas/plans to Mike Palma at wmvvactivities18@gmail.com.
