Fort Collins woman gets traditional wedding, prepares for death on own terms - Coloradoan
They found each other again, and Bob invited Debra to join him in Colorado.They were married in 1988 by a justice of the peace in Jefferson County. Bob adopted Debra’s son and daughter, and life with its ups and downs went on. Bob and Debra have five grandchildren and a great-grandchild on the way.While recent times have been dark for the family because of Debra’s deteriorating health, they enjoyed a bright time in February, thanks in large part to the kindness of strangers.Debra and Bob had talked for a long time about renewing their wedding vows. Debra let it be known she would enjoy a traditional wedding ceremony and reception — experiences she never had.Her daughter, Jennifer, sprang into action. With money tight because of Debra’s medical needs, Jennifer posted a request for wedding decorations on the Facebook group Free in Larimer County. She explained her mother was terminally ill.The response was overwhelming, Jennifer said. People donated everything that would be needed for a wedding, including flowers, decorations, and a dress and shoes for the bride. People volunteered to do Debra’s hair, makeup and nails so she would look her best on the big day.Everything came together in six days.Pathways donated space at its Fort Collins facility. The ceremony took place Feb. 15, the day after Valentine’s Day.Every family member had a role in the ceremony. Their 9-year-old grandson, Drake, served as best man.“Everything was done for me, and bless their hearts for doing that,” Debra said. “It just tells me that Fort Collins still has a heart, that the people of this town are still the best.”Gratitude is part of the message Debra wants to send to the community in her final days. She is especially thankful for the care she has received from Pathways, a nonprofit that has served the community for decades.“They are the best,” she said. “All I have to do is call and they are right here for me.”And she is grateful to her family, who has stood by her for so many years, in good times and in bad. She said Bob has been her “rock” and the “strongest man I’ve ever known.”She knows he’ll be strong for the family after she is gone.“It has been a very good life,” she said. “My family has always been number one in my life. I can go to sleep knowing they will be OK. Papa will be there.”Kevin Duggan is a senior columnist and reporter. Contact him at email@example.com. Feb 1, 2020

Gardening: Classic Gomphrena remains popular after hundreds of years - The Detroit News
It’s been cultivated in European gardens since the early 18th century.
Thomas Jefferson planted seeds of this perky, heat-loving annual in his childhood garden in 1737 and he also grew it at Monticello. Today it’s still a staple in his estate's gardens as it’s one of the few annuals that can take the blistering heat of summer and continue to bloom all season.
Gomphrena was originally available in pink, white and a vivid magenta, considered quite jarring by many in the old days. But some 30 years ago, a gorgeous new hybrid became available and got lots of attention. Those crimson red flowers of Gomphrena haagiana ‘Strawberry Fields’ were stunning additions to our orange and yellow stand of Bidens, Zinnia ‘Zahara’ and marigolds last summer in the OPC display garden in Rochester.
A new selection, ‘Las Vegas Purple’, a vivid plum purple sporting small round flowers on a plant that has an upright growth habit, rising to 18 inches in height, is on my wish list. Though the flowers are relatively small and ball shaped, they attract attention because of their neon color.
These and other Gomphrena are popular for use as cut flowers and are easily dried for use in wreaths and other everlasting arrangements that will last for years.
New this season is a vegetative selection of Gomphrena, ‘Truffula Pink,’ from Proven Winners. It's a compact grower that produces bright pink flowers similar to the tall, bright pink see-through plant Gomphrena ‘Fireworks’ that also starred in the OPC display garden last season. Rising to 18 to 24 inches, it works well in garden plantings and containers and garnered rave reviews in trial gardens last...
