'A blessing from the Lord': Army veteran and wife get new appliances
She had knee surgery years ago, and had a itsy-bitsy makeshift wooden ramp built then near their front door. The incline is barely big enough to support canes and walkers, and still gives way to steps the Goodings have to climb to reach the front door. She never imagined that her petition would get the couple a new refrigerator, washer and dryer. She recently applied to Anderson Interfaith Ministries asking if the nonprofit design could help her get a ramp built near their home. Pam Gooding has dispute with her knees and has several other health problems. Nearby, they have their “traveling gear” — two canes and a walker. Years later, it’s still there. And after 36 years together, they still leverage hands.
