Jack Roper: And in the easy chair in Mayo, here is Margie Scruggs. Hello Margie. How are you?
Margie Scruggs: Fine. How are you?
Jack Roper: I’m fine. Are you comfortable? Are you ok? ‘Cause you just got over surgery.
Margie Scruggs: Right. It’s a little bit rough, but I’m trying to get over it.
Jack Roper: You know, we heard about you through your sister… that’s Paulette Mintz.
Margie Scruggs: Yes, She’s my only sister.
Jack Roper: Well she says… “My wish is for my only living sister to receive a new electric cook stove/oven. She is well known in her community of Mayo for being so kind and helpful to others. Margie comes from a large family and enjoys having family meals at her home. The stove has now only 2 working burners and they are the small ones. Margie is going through a hard time right now. Last year after Margie had a mammogram and ultrasound she was told she has duct carcinoma.”
Jack Roper: You’re just coming back from surgery.
Margie Scruggs: Yes sir.
Jack Roper: How are you feeling?
Margie Scruggs: Pretty sore.
But, you’re ok sitting up talking to us?
Margie Scruggs: Oh, yes sir. Yes, sir. I’m fine sitting right here.
Well, I’m glad we could come see you. We thought this would perk you up a little bit. Make you feel better if we just brought you a brand new stove. How about that? A new range and cook stove.
Margie Scruggs: Oh, lord, yes.
Margie Scruggs: I appreciate it.
Jack Roper: Merry Christmas early.
Margie Scruggs: Thank you!
