For Steven Garver, life has come full circle.
Two years ago Garver found himself back at the kitchen table with a sketch pad and colored pencils, something he had not done since he was in art class as a student at Iola High School.
Never lacking for things to do, Garver was enjoying retirement with golfing and biking while biding his time to travel the world with his bride of 47 years who was just a few years away from retirement. Sandy was also taking care of her parents one suffered from dementia and the other had Alzheimers which kept her extra busy. When her father, Wayne Hiser, passed away, Sandy had to put her mother, Oleata, in an assisted-living home. Sandy still spent several hours a week with her mother.
