Papa’s World – Memories from the past part NINE!

THE VILLAGES – FLORIDA

Many a day and night spent here in Lake Sumpter – dancing – listening to the live bands.

My brother’s house was within walking distance of the town square.

We would visit him for 6 to 8 weeks after the new year.

Every morning we would get up and walk our three miles early.

MEMORIES of my brother and The Villages.

My brother Roger and some of his friends.

Growing up – he is ten years older – I envisioned him as my hero.

He left for college and never moved back – instead lived in numerous places across the country.

The last ten years of his life were spent in The Villages – at first with his wife – who passed away.

The last six years of his life – we would spend 6 to 8 weeks with him.

He wanted us to move down and be with him.

But – we had too many small growing grandchildren.

Roger and Sherry

Sherry loved my brother and he – her – so many things we did together – golfing – happy hours.

We would explore areas outside of the villages –

He owned two golf carts and we would go on all the cart trails.

He knew everyone from memory and short cuts.

We had a app on her phone that gave directions on the miles and miles of cart paths.
