He also was able to go to Stake Conference where two apostles, Holland and Ballard, and Elder Huntsman from the Quorum of the Seventy spoke. Elder Huntsman mentioned in his talk “how nice it was for David Watson to make it out today after his terrible accident.” He had a great showing of support from members of the ward and stake…and hoped that it would spark some visitors. Unfortunately, it hasn’t. He’s been very lonely for people to visit. Between a few visits a week from my mom and siblings…he has a lot of downtime to be lonely. Once the occupational and physical therapy is done…he’s left to his own devices in the facility for hours a day. He would love to have people come visit him, even if its a short stay. Even if you don’t know him well, he’s anxious for company and would be happy to make a new friend. Rosie and I will be flying out to see him on Tuesday, and plan to keep him occupied for as many hours as we can.
