When the day arrived, though, I was overwhelmed with the 10re I re- ceived from so many. Gifts, cards, and birthday greetings from friends filled both my mailbox and my com- puter. My wonderful children took me out for dinner and then surprised me with a homemade cake, a home- made card, and a homemade gift all wrapped with their love. By the end of the day my melancholy had fled and my happiness retumed. I felt truly blessed and I remembered that life is all about the love you share not the mistakes that you make. I realized too that I wanted to spent the rest of my days here becoming the person that God meant for me to be. I wanted to watch more sunrises, share more smiles, and spread more love. I wanted to fill my life with acts of kindness and moments ofjoy. I wanted to give my children wise words, kind thoughts, huge hugs, gentle kisses, loving laughter, and endless happi- ness. I wanted to help others every chance I could and in every way I could. I wanted to know that when I finally step out of this body and across pets on God meant for you to be.

Roach Funeral Home, Gassaway. Jeremiah Samples is the assistant to the cabinet secretary for the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources. He said the agency looked in its files to see which clients in other programs might have incomes low enough to now qualify for health care. They sent letters three weeks ago, and in less then a month they have gotten back more than 40,000 requests to enroll - nearly half the total they hope to enroll over the next three years, he said. "We are pleasantly surprised by the amount we've received," Samples said. "To have already iden-, tiffed and enrolled 45,000 folks, before the process really even be- gins, we're that much farther ahead of the game." Several other states are seeing a similarly strong demand. Dee Mahan, director of Medicaid advocacy for the consumer group Families USA, said states including Illinois and Arkansas have gotten huge responses to outreach efforts similar to West Virginia's. She added that, a i The Sister's of St. Joseph Chari- table Fund (SSJCF) and Our Community's Foundation- The Parkersburg Area Community Foun- dation (PACF) and the Regional Af- filiates- will offer a free grant work- shop on Wed., Oct. 30 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm at Calhoun County Com mittee on Aging, 105 Market St., Grantsville. Representatives from nonprofit organizations, government entities, and schools are invited to attend the workshop to learn more about both foundation's and grantmaking process. Light refresh- ments will be provided. The workshop will be co-presented by Our Community's Foundation Pro- gram Officer, Marian Clowes, and few years ago, Oregon was over- whelmed by the demand when it of- fered to cover the working poor. "In 2008, Oregon expanded their Medicaid program. They expanded it to low-income adults, and they had 90,000 adults apply for 10,000 slots," Mahan said. More than half of the states are considering the option offered under the Affordable Care Act to use Med- icaid to cover working people to poor to buy insurance. Critics of the law say the government should not be involved. However, Mahan pointed out, there is a clear pattern of pent-up demand in that population, all around the country. Samples said West Virginia offi- cials still want to hear from the other people who got letters; he said his office will send another copy, if need be. West Virginians can also find out if they're qualified by going on-line, he added. . "The best wa) to find out if you are, is to go to the federal exchange web- site or to, or walk into a county office." Samples stressed that folks here can still sign up. To see if they qualify, they can get in touch with the Depart- ment of Health and Human Resources or go to one of the enrollment web- sites, he said.
