Ira Sullivan

19 posts in this topic

Just got off the phone with Ira. I called him because I hadn't heard from him for a while and the last time was about surgery. I had been worried about his health and it turns out he is more vigorous than I. Keep on keeping on Ira. He will be 87 in a few weeks.

They sound so easy until you learn about how drawn out the process is, even for one.

Ira called today and we talked for about 20 minutes. He's had one side of his mouth "implanted" and will have the other side done soon. He can play saxophone and flute currently but needs the dental work to work on the trumpet (his favorite).

He will be 88 soon and just keeps on truckin'.

Duh! I didn't think to ask. He was very "up".
