Brazil Buzz

Wednesday, March 26, 2008

It is shortly afternoon this Easter Sunday and I am alone.

Later, our grandchildren that still live in Brownsburg are coming to the little blue house at the end of the road. Paul will have completed his workday at Sears.

In the meantime, I am taking time out to communicate with you through Brazil Buzz.

A well-planned meal consisting of our favorite comfort foods is in the works.

Beautiful carrot cake and pie shells are cooling on the racks on the counter.

The latter will be filled with smooth rich homemade fillings, yet to be determined.

Chicken and homemade noodles, like my mom used to make and all the trimmings will surely please our guests.

Ours will be the type of meal that country preachers of yesteryear would drool at the mouth for and weight conscious folks might scorn.

We miss our daughters, Starla and Lori and the rest of our clan on the holidays, as everyday.

They live too far away to be lured in by the tempting sweet-smelling baits that fill the space in my kitchen.

Once upon a time, I could reel them in easily. Those were happy days!

On March 14, 2008, Richard Adam Greene, 85, formerly of Brazil, passed away at the Veteran's Home in Lafayette. He was born in Brazil, March 25, 1922, to Joseph and Hazel Green.

Adam attended local grade schools and graduated from Brazil High School. He served his country during World War II.

He married Jewel Luticia Petiford Greene. Judy, the love of his life preceded him in death.

He is survived by four daughters, Denise Gard and Don, Terre Haute, Judith Greene, Plainfield, Phyllis Norvell and Ron, Indianapolis, and Terri McGee and Keith, Terre Haute, four sons, Richard Addison Green and Karen, Terre Haute, Joseph Ermin Green, Terre Haute, Matthew Greene, Deland Fla., and Ronny Jones and Loralee, Indianapolis, 14 grandchildren and a nephew, Jimmie Bass, Chicago.

Richard Adam Greene was laid to rest in Lost Creek Cemetery, Terre Haute.

Adam and Judy were good people, good neighbors and longtime family friends that I proudly regard as links in my golden chain of friendships.
