PHS grad faces long road to recovery

EDITOR’S NOTE: Sue and Bob Brown of Oakwood shared with us the following story about their son, Derric  Brown, a Paulding High School graduate, who is currently recovering from a stroke.

On April 12, we got the devastating news our son, Derric, was being taken to Riverside Hospital via an EMS. He had suffered a stroke at his son’s baseball game. On Sunday, he was very talkative, but it was evident he had aphasia. On Monday, his church family called together a prayer service to be held at 7:30 that night; later, the priest told me had never seen this done and for 75 people to show up was amazing.
