Dear classmates, wives and other friends of Fred Bliss,
I recently talked with Fred and Dorothy, and discovered that Fred has had a series, of what I call, mini strokes. This has rendered him unable to read or write text of any kind. He cannot communicate by cards, letters or emails. He hence cannot deal with the computer.
On the other hand his speech is good and his understanding of the spoken word is also good. He can receive telephone calls and truly enjoys chatting about the class, friends and the “good old days”. By not being able to communicate in writing he is extremely frustrated, and I think he may be getting depressed. I call him several times per month just to keep in touch or whenever I have some news of the class or I am thinking of him. When I talk with him he seems to be cheered up, is his old friendly self and his memory is good (better than mine). He really has appreciated the calls myself and other classmates have made over the past several months.
We may be able to devise some additional way to communicate with him, but in the meantime, please give him a call, especially if you have some news of classmates or other news of interest to Fred, he will really appreciate it.
His number is: (918) 683-4179.
