When Sanapia is not doctoring, she tells the patient to rest, pray and think of good things. Sometimes she asks the help of the native peyote leader and arranges a meeting. On the last day after the treatment, Sanapia holds a blessing ceremony. She covers the patient arms and legs in red paint, this needs to stay on for two days. With this in mind, when you walk around with body parts covered in paint, this is presenting a clear signal to everybody in the village.
In “Wordsmith” by Young and “The Gold Mountain coat” by Fong Bates both passages show relationships between fathers and their children. The relationship between father and daughter in “Wordsmith” contrasts greatly with the type of relationship that Sam Sing has with his children. Although the relationships are very different, both passages show the importance of communication between family members. In “Wordsmith” the father is trying to fix the relationship between him and his daughter like how he is trying to fix the maintenance of the house, “he begins the... process of filling in the gaps... (4-5)”. With all the years the father has missed, he wants to be a part of her life more.
He chose the right decision of covering up her accident, by acting out of pure love for her as a father to daughter. Throughout the whole story, Luke has had rituals in his house that he does to bring his spiritual relationship between him and God closer. At the end of the story, Luke also attempts to talk to God to justify his actions after the occurence. Luke tries to convince God and argue that he has never had a daughter of his own, so of course, he doesn’t know what it’s like. But, Luke is asked if he loves his daughter more than himself, because it would be a ‘love in weakness’, however God is reminded that it is similar to his love of humankind.
I believe everyone on this email thread was aware of my meeting today with Joe Baldwin, Guardian, of Kathy Rennich to discuss her recent return from inpatient rehabilitation at a local nursing facility and her expressed desire to move to the Hensgen Home. Basically, in February 2017, Kathy fell resulting in a fractured tail bone. She received inpatient rehabilitation at Care Springs for fourteen days and has returned home with PT services. Since her return home, Kathy has refused to participate in ADL’s (which isn’t a change in pattern as she refused prior to the nf stay) and is demanding that she have the opportunity to live at the Hensgen Home. Kathy’s reasoning behind wanting to move the Hengsen Home isn’t exactly clear to the team.
She was delighted to have her own room and many of Mary’s old toys to play with. Irma became a teacher and taught for two years at The Moreau Bend School before moving to Grand View School on Frog Hollow Road. After teaching at Grand View School for only one year, she became ill with a chronic respiratory illness and finally was diagnosed with a “spot on her lung.” With her weight at 98 pounds, she was ordered to take the “rest cure” for a year, which meant no work and gentle walks in the sunshine. During that time she met Robert Schnieders, and despite her condition they got married and moved into a little house in the Cole Junction Bottoms. Robert and Irma had eight children.
Maj. Chris Faris talked about was the affect that war had on his and his daughter’s relationship. The talk he had with his daughter allowed him to see the pain and hurt that comes from him being away at performing his military duty. His daughter, now 118 years old, reminded him of the last time he was home for her birthday, which at that time she was 10 years old. Each time he was only home for 2 months at a time; this made it difficult for him to have a positive relationship with his wife and children. Although the first attempt to seek counseling failed this not make them lost hope from seeking help again.

Grant organizes the visit, and even the children themselves give Jefferson gifts. It’s important that Jefferson didn’t realize how many visitors he’d have—Jefferson doesn’t realize how many people love him and defend him. He seems to treat this knowledge as an impetus to behave with even more courage and dignity—thus, he waits to cry until everyone’s left, showing his self-control and selflessness. He is recognizing and embracing his importance to the community. In a way, Jefferson has been building up to this moment throughout A Lesson Before Dying.
When she tells the blind man goodbye, he asks if he can touch her face. The touch of his fingers on her face is a pivotal moment in her life, something the narrator does not understand.

A man by name of Ellsworth Batts, who never recovered from the death of his beloved wife, Mildred, comes to Clarence for help. With the help of Clarence, Ellsworth was able to communicate with his dead wife. This gave Ellsworth the closure he needed to recover from the pain he encountered since the death of his wife.“The next day Ellsworth came at dusk dark, and lo and behold, said Miss Eunice, he’d fixed himself up washed and trimmed his hair,and had on a nice clean set of clothes -God knows where he got them from- looking in a spirit she hadn’t seen him in since he got off to the army” (Kenan 18). The death of his wife was his past and it had a remarkable impact on his present life. Ellsworth was not taking care of himself and let the days pass him.

Corrie and her sister Betsie were taken to Ravensbruck, with only Corrie making it out alive. Because of a clerical error, she was released a week before all the women her age were killed. Though she lost everything, Corrie maintained a grateful and forgiving perspective. Before her death on April 15, 1983, she traveled, sharing her story and preaching forgiveness. In fact, at 90 years old she forgave one of her tormentors.
She even goes to a New Brown Memorial Church reunion and gives a riveting speech, making peace with her husband Andrew’s death. James says, “For years, Mommy never talked about my father…she saw her marriage to him as the beginning of her life ,and thus his death as part of its end…” (McBride 253). She also accepts the death of his brother, and learns to make peace with with what happened between her and her sister.
