Santa Claus visited Coastal Manor nursing home Friday in Ludowici.
One of the residents he spent time with was Marie Crosby. As Santa approached, Crosby began singing, “Here Comes Santa Claus, Here Comes Santa Claus.” She and her son, Steve Welborn, exchanged stories of past Christmases with Santa, and all laughed.
According to Welborn, the only thing missing from the scene was a warm fireplace. He told Liberty Regional Medical Center CEO Mike Hester how his mother used to make the best biscuits with chocolate gravy during the Christmas holidays.
“We weren’t rich, but when Mama cooked, we sure thought we were,” said Welborn
