jon had a pretty good birthday on July 21. i missed seeing him in the morning because he was away getting a medical treatment. viva las vegas club members steven and robin were there in the afternoon and stayed a long time visiting with jon, opening presents and reading all the greetings. jon was very happy to get my 'party in a bag' and the gifts brought by steven and robin.
jon was most happy about the notebook i gave him with a few pictures and all the greetings sent by elvis fans via the website. thank you so much for your messages. it really made his day to know he is so well thought of by the 'elvis family.'
jon wasn't feeling well due to the treatment, but he had a good little 'party' that afternoon. i talked with him the next day and he told me he did eat the cake! and he also personally thanked me for the bag with all the goodies, and especially, the notebook. i'm so glad i could do something like that for him. it meant so much.
jon is now living in a nursing home. (it's a really nice place!) he is dealing with diabetes and the affects of a mini stroke. but his spirits are good and he appreciates being remembered. we here in las vegas are doing our best to do what we can for him. i have a lot of appreciation for barry--his close friend, robin&steve, and pete vallee for all the things they have done.
what more can be done? well, jon just LOVES hearing from people. and, i am happy to share with you how you can participate.
i will revamp the website a little, but you still can stop by and send your best wishes via the guestbook. periodically, i will print them out and give them to jon.
thanks for your support of our friend, the Charro Bartender, Jon Patino.
