Memory Lane: January 16, 2003


From the January 16, 2003 edition of The Wayne Herald

Turning a set-back into a come-back

Ron "Gus" Gustafson spoke to a full house at Our Savior Lutheran Church.

The Lyons native, who lost an arm and shoulder and sustained a crushed leg in a farming accident at age nine, focused on three main points.

The first is to process the garbage in your life. Next, never give up. And finally, always have the courage to face the next challenge.

Gustafson has also suffered a stroke several years ago but told his audience that his faith has sustained him throughout all the setbacks in his life.
