Day 2 John Kading’s Heart Surgery

(Note-Dad didn’t look like this the day after, but loved the picture with Jasmyn and him! She was around 2 and a half years old in this picture!)

January 26, 2011 (7 year’s ago!)

It’s Wednesday morning around 9:30 AM and the day after my dad’s open-heart surgery.

He is doing fine after the surgery and thankfully it had gone as planned.

They first did a triple bypass, then they replaced his aortic value, too with one from a pig, believe it or not!

Then did something important with the aorta and grafted it so it wouldn’t break or tear. Hey, I am not a nurse!


The caseworker came in at 5:45 PM to tell us that the surgeon had just finished in the operating room a few moments ago and would be in to talk to us soon.

Just a few moments later he came in to tell us what he did, which is pretty much what I already said in the beginning.

An important thing that he told us was that he had placed some kind of zapper thing in there, too. I think it’s similar to a pacemaker that helps to get his heart beating like it should be.

Pacemaker in the Future?

He went on to say that if he ever needs a pacemaker, it will be no biggie to now put it in him.

Another note I want to say is that he talked in the ‘we’ way, when we discussed the reduction aspect of the aorta and the graphing of that ‘something’ in him, which I found so comforting and truly a professional approach.

It seems to me that there was a bit of research done to come up with this way in doing what needed to be done to fix the problem of this ‘something’ in him on his aortic value, too,too.

The doctor told us that this is not as a common procedure than what he had thought he’d do in my dad’s case. But he emphasized that ‘we’ part of the group of professionals that were on the team for this operation.

Thankful to the Professionals

I’m so very thankful for all their knowledge and experience in how to fix my dad’s heart problems.

The professionals at Vassar Brothers Hospital are the greatest!

He also made it quite clear that my dad aortic value, too was by far one of the worst he had seen and whatever the name for it ( I am no nurse, you know!) affects only about 20% of the population.

So what my dad had been actually quite rare.

But today, thanks to this operation.

It’s now perfectly fine, even though I know there’s part of a pig in him now! LOL!

Thank you, whoever you are pig!

That part of you has given my dad hopefully many more years with all of us that love him so very much!

I’m so very grateful this morning to be able to write about the success of the series operation that my father had gone through yesterday.

I’m so very thankful to have a hospital with these highly trained surgeons to be in my neighborhood.

Years back you had to drive to Westchester County Hospital to have this procedure done!

However, today it’s done right in Poughkeepsie, New York!

Thanking my Spirit/Reiki Guides

I thank all for your comfort and felt all of you with me as I sent the Reiki through my hands to the top of my thighs that represented my father’s body during the surgery.

I also thank you for that symbol of the number five that had told me that it would be around that hour of five that we would hear from the doctor.

And it was indeed 5:45 pm when we were notified by the nurse that the surgery was complete and the doctor would be in shortly to update us.

It was 6:25 when he sat with us to tell us of the success of the operation.

I love that today is a new day for my dad!

And now and in the days to come he will need the necessary rehab for his heart, but it will be so rewarding in the end!

I am trusting that all will go well.

And before he knows it- He will be on the golf course in the spring making a hole in one.

And so it is…

January 26, 2018

This is 7 years later!

I am now fully and completly engaged to create this!

This website is to celebrate my father’s lifetime of pictures and the stories that go along with them!

In addition, it is also to honor my mother, and all she had done throughout her life in bringing all of us together, too!

I wish to raise the glass to both my parents for all that they had accomplished in their lifetimes.

My mom had worn so many ‘hats’ through her life, but this one when her and Shirely Evert got into the ‘Red Hats Society’ is one of my all time favorites of my mom!

And boy, did she enjoy her ‘Seniors” on Tuesday, too!

Thank you to all that gave her so much joy in whatever part you had played in her life, too!

As I browse through all my journal writing’s over the last 16 years and how much my life is what it is today because of her.

I will try my best to honor her on this website, but I need a bit of help to have you comment to tell me a story that will give those that read it a laugh out loud or just a memory that you may have of her would be wonderful!

Life is to be lived!

Memories are to be cherished!

I am trying to do both!

Blessings to all!

Enjoy the Millbrook Memories!

January 25, 2011 Open Heart Surgery


Going through my past journal writings to see what may be of interest to Millbrook Memories, and came across this one and my reflections of my dad having open-heart surgery and all the emotions that it had brought into my family’s life.

However, when you read it you will see this word called Reiki that I do on my father.

So for those that may not be familiar with it, it is a spiritual healing art that helps in balancing our energy bodies, which we have 4 of them, spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical, so in that healing can be achieved.

Some may know this, while other’s may not, that I began my Reiki Journey back in March 2006 and continued through the completion of becoming a Reiki Master/Teacher in October of that year, too!

I have taught many students throughout the years, and will continue to do so whenever there is a student or students that have a desire to learn it, too!

Love sharing my Reiki!

But for the most part, I have used it for myself and the calming of my anxiety that it’s spiritual comfort has given me throughout these past 11 years!

So when my dad had this very intense open-heart surgery it was such a blessing to me to have it to use on myself, on my mother and of course on the patient himself, my father!

And as I post the updates on his surgery you will see that word quite a bit I must tell you too!

At times like this when dad was going through this open-heart surgery and the months of rehab after, it was a blessing to have my reiki and all the support of the many friends and family members that came to visit him during that time, too!

I will be continuing on with this very important event in our family’s life tomorrow, too!

Blessings to all!

January 25, 2011

It’s a bit after one in the afternoon and I am sitting in the cardiothoracic waiting room at Vassar Brothers Hospital in Poughkeepsie, New York.

My dad went into surgery about 9 am this morning and they’ve told us that it’ll be around seven tonight until he may be done.

I am thinking it’ll be around four or five, but we will see.

I did reiki on him yesterday afternoon while he lay down on his bed and did as much as I could this morning before he left to go to the operating room.

I am feeling that everything will be fine.

I have asked my guides to watch over him and to let him know that he is not alone and that the Reiki energy is within him and ready to be enhanced if need be.

And so it is…

I wrote this on January 19, 2006!

I first want to say, I am so sorry to have waited so long!

But here we are 12 years later and I am finally able to share my father’s images with the world by creating this website!

Here’s how I was able to do it!

Please enjoy and share!

Snapshots by John Kading

By Diane Kading Schoessow

Tonight, January 19, 2006, my father will be doing a slide presentation at Lyall Memorial Federated Church, which is our family’s church.

My father has all his life had a passion for his pictures, and he will tonight be able to share that passion with an audience.

I can remember all through my life vividly the flashing of that flash or the distinct clicking sound of a picture being taken by him.

Now, after all these years, of his dedication in capturing the many images of his life experiences in his hometown in and around the small village of Millbrook, New York, he will be able to share his precious pictures and slide collection.

John Kading of Millbrook, New York always had his camera with him

My father has always throughout his life had a camera with him, or should I say, attached to him.

It was like he had a magical way, to be able to take at a moment notice any event that was worthy to have that everlasting snapshot added to his precious collection.


( Update! Remember this was 12 years ago!)

He is now in the process of organizing those thousands and thousands of pictures throughout his life!

Recently he has somehow become focused and consumed to get this overwhelming project accomplished at this time in his life.

If you really got to know my father, you’d realize that his attention span is very short, so for him to finally crack down in organizing his many images into some kind of order is truly a huge accomplishment!

Does Procrastination get inherited?

I guess that’s where I must get my bad habits from about procrastinating!

Thanks, Dad! It must have been passed down in the gene pool to me in avoiding tasks that just hasn’t caught my attention to complete, yet.

It usually takes something or someone to crack the wipe for me to get certain things done in my life that I really should!

Marilyn Kading of Millbrook, New York

Note: with my mother’s passing on November 18, 2016, that was the cracking of the wipe, I believe!

Through the years when I worked at the store with my father and I needed him to help me finish a particular project, that the high pitch sound of the fire siren would always seem to go off, and therefore so would he be rushing off to wherever that call would be, too!

And in addition to that high pitch sound of the fire siren, there would be the call from the Millbrook ambulance squad as well, that would turn him into the Super Man and Hero for many throughout the years he was actively involved.

So all it took was a phone call from the Millbrook Ambulance answering service (Remember, there was not a simple calling to 911 back then!) that would call my father and off he would go to rescue someone, which left me to rescue that project and complete on my own!

John Kading, Gets Abducted by Aliens

It never failed to amaze me with how he would get out of doing something by having to do something else.

I had grown up thinking that he had to be the best juggler in the world to do all the things he did in a day’s time.

I would watch him in the morning, to take his daily walk to the Millbrook Diner to have the breakfast of his usual coffee, eggs, sunny-side up and toast, then he’d return to the store to do the bank deposits and another trip down Franklin Avenue to the Bank of Millbrook.

There were many times that I was sure he went to the North Pole or maybe even got abducted by aliens because he took so long to come back from either the Millbrook Diner or from the Bank of Millbrook!

However, he always managed to find his way back again at some time or another during the day.

But Mom, Shirley and I, or whoever has on duty, always seemed to manage his business pretty well, while he was off gallivanting, as my mother had called it many, many times!

He would return and we would say, “John, where were you?”

With his reply always pretty much the same over and over again, “Oh, I just ran into so and so and…” (Yep! that’s my dad!)

It never failed to surprise me in how my father could divert his attention to something or someone else instead of what he was supposed to be doing.

I have to confess to while growing up there were those times when I admit to having passionately despised that fire whistle and those phone calls from that answering service because it meant that my father would have his ‘pass’ to be excused from our project!

Therefore, it meant that I would again have to finish what we had started, and had quite obviously mistakenly thought that we would be able to finish it together!

Which was a mistake on my part to ever have imagined that miracle to happen when he had arranged a never-fail system with God himself in finding ways to be legally excused?

I think he had some kind of magical power to relieve himself of any such projects that he felt me, or someone else could do.


But there was sure one thing he could do really well and that was to “TALK”!

And let me tell you, he managed really well in accomplishing a lot of that, too!

John Kading of Millbrook, New York loved his sheep and all the baby lambs
John Kading of Millbrook, New York loved his sheep!

Nonetheless, in between all the talking, he did manage to get a lot of other things done as we

He was involved in so many organizations as well, from

  • The Millbrook Business Organization,
  • Millbrook Lions Club,
  • Millbrook Rotary Club,
  • VFW,
  • and of course, I can not forget his years of sharing his love of his sheep
  • and being a leader of Southern Shepherd’s 4H Club!

Finally, today I have come to realize that it was over those thousands of cups of coffee at the Millbrook Diner and “talking” with all those thousands of people, that had brought so much joy and happiness to my father’s life!

So today all those thousands of faces and images that had been captured with a snapshot from the camera that belonged to a man by the name of John Kading, my father, will be forever protected and cherished for years to come on this website!

Enjoy the Images of Years Past

I am hoping and praying that all in attendance at tonight’s presentation will enjoy all those images of people and places of long ago of his beloved village of Millbrook, New York.

(Note: The room was full of Millbrook Lovers, and everyone did enjoy the images and the stories connected with them, too!)

I hope that the audience will appreciate his dedication and devotion to have documented all these images throughout the years and all the changes and improvements that have occurred around the Village of Millbrook and Town of Washington, as well!

I hope that my father will be looked upon and respected as an authority on his town’s history in the years to come.

SharIng the Images- Brings JOY

John Kading loved having his coffee at The Millbrook Diner on Franklin Avenue in Millbrook, New York

Maybe it is to have him share these images throughout the area that will give him that sense of joy and happiness in his life just like it had by talking to all those people over all those cups of coffee at the Millbrook Diner had done throughout the years, as well!

Yes, indeed life’s all about “sharing” with others in our lives, and it is with our choice of “sharing” that we are blessed in our lives, too!

So with that, may I introduce to you, my father, John Kading and his precious gift of these images of the days of yesterday in and around the small village known as Millbrook, New York!

I am, Diane Kading Schoessow, the oldest daughter of John and Marilyn Kading, and the creator of this site Millbrook Memories!

I started working at The Corner News Store when I was around 10.

I would do whatever odd jobs I could do at my age.

I can remember reuniting lost envelopes to their matching greeting cards, to give you an idea of the kind of work I could do at 10!

I worked after school and summer vacations, starting at 25 Cents an hour, and remember how thrilled I was to have worked for 4 hours to be able to buy “Daydream Believer” by  The Monkees one summer, too!

I graduated in 1974 from Millbrook High School and went on to Dutchess Community College to study Retail Business Management, thinking that I would continue the family’s business.

I graduated with an Associate Degree and tried to integrate what I had learned in college at The Corner News, but my boss-my father-had his way of doing business and I would need to accept that!

So with that same entrepreneurial spirit running through my brain- that my dad had passed onto me- I became interested in Network Marketing and joined quite a few of them throughout my life.

Always looking for the Right one to satisfy my itch!

Finding Love

But then I fell in love,  with my Prince!

Which followed with a Beautiful Wedding!

Which then followed in the building our dream home, with the help of many family and friends!

That was followed by our most cherished creation of all with the birth of our two children, our daughter, Ashley and our son, Kyle!

Life was good!

A Normal Life?

Did I have a normal life growing up in Millbrook, New York?

A small village where everyone seemed to know everyone!

But it is also what makes it so Special too!

I grew up in this womb with witnessing this connection that I had a front row centre seat to watching as I worked at The Corner News Store!

It was heartwarming to grow up experiencing this bond!

And I believe we will never ever lose that bond either!

We all have our Millbrook Memories and that’s what I want to share with this site!

Our connection to those cherished Millbrook Memories!

But there’s more to it then the pictures and stories of Millbrook, New York!

With the entrepreneur spirit passed down from my father, I have wanted to have my own online business that I could do during my retirement years.

On my 61st Birthday, June 23, 2017, I joined Wealthy Affiliate 7-day FREE trial, which gave me the way to test it out if it would work for me.

I finished their training in that week and was confident that it was the Real Deal in just what I needed to create this website!

This would be the way I could finally share my father’s lifetime of pictures of Millbrook to the world!

This was the way I could create a “Forever Gift” to my parents and to my family that would last for years!

At last, I had created a HOME for my father’s pictures where anyone around the world could come and browse through the posts and remember their own Millbrook Memories, too!

But Wait’s There’s More

As I continued to research this area of sharing family pictures and their memories, I was overjoyed to see that many are interested in this same thing too!

I am in the baby boom generation and we all are concerned about our parents and older relatives picture and memory collections!

We are a movement going on in the background trying to save our family’s pictures before a disaster may forever take them away from not only us but our future generations too!

 “Just Do It!’ 

It’s time to take action to do what will preserve and protect them for years!

We are the Memory Keepers of the family and we all need to take the role seriously now more than ever before!

Our family history is important and all those pictures in a shoe box in your closet or God forbid your basement, need to be cared for correctly NOW!

Bennett College

Bennett College in Millbrook, NY is a very sad sight for any eyes to see today.

From a thriving school for girls to going co-ed in my lifetime, to see it now is heartbreaking.

I am quite sure that there are many like me that can still see the images of the various colours of the uniforms of the competitions of the Marching Bands on that once beautiful green lawn, too.

My hope is this image of that will bring a joy to many when they see it too.

Please share this website to all that may bring a joy into their lives too!

A Memory of Bennett College

My dad, John Kading, owned the Corner News Store since 1947 and would deliver the Sunday newspaper’s to Bennett College for years, and I can remember being around maybe 7 or 8 going with him many of those Sundays to help him.

I remember in how I was always in awe of the beauty of the architecture that surrounded Bennett College and breaks many hearts in having to witness the neglect over the years since its closure.

Fireworks and American Flag
Fireworks and American Flag

And I always looked forward to the July 4th celebration’s that would bring so much excitement to our small village of Millbrook!

The parade with all the local Fire Companies trying to stay all in step to win that trophy they could bring back to proudly place in their showcase at their firehouse!

And to hear each of the matching bands play their particular song loudly as they marched down Franklin Avenue!

How exciting it was to have always a front row seat and one of the best seats to see the parades on the roof of The Corner News Store or right in the front sitting on the curb!

American Flags
American Flags

It was also a concern if The Corner News Store had ordered enough American flags for all that had wanted to buy them during this big event in our small village of Millbrook, too.

Making sure there were enough red, white and blue party papers for the celebration that many would count on to buy, too.

I have wonderful memories at this time of year, as I am sure many do as well.

We were all so lucky to have had the life growing up in Millbrook and I will always be so grateful for that gift too.

The Corner News Store

What I learned from living in Millbrook is that my parents knew everyone, and many by name and their family’s history too.

And fortunately for me, I had been blessed to have the front row seat to experience my life growing up in Millbrook, as being the firstborn and the daughter of John and Marilyn Kading, and owners of The Corner News Store in the heart of Millbrook, New York.

I learned quickly what that fire siren meant and how I would watch my dad drop everything to go running up the street!

Or when the phone would ring (you know that one we all had with a cord attached to it!), from the Millbrook Ambulance dispatcher that there was an accident or someone in need of its services!

Oh, the life I lived being the daughter of John and Marilyn Kading, and the best job in the whole world, working at The Corner News Store and having my Dad as my boss!

I watched in how something could happen to a local family and Millbrook would come together to help.

And I watched in how something wonderful would happen to a local family and it was shared quickly with joy for them too!

The Corner News Store was the place to come to ask anything Millbrook related and sometimes beyond, too.

The Corner News Store during its 52 years was like Google is to the internet too!

Just stop in and ask a question and someone there would know the answer for it!

My Mother, Marilyn Kading

As my family come upon the first year of my mother’s passing which was on November 18, 2016, I hope to share with you some memories of her too. After all, my intention is to make this as a Forever Gift

My mother, Marilyn Kading, would be sitting on her stool, but to me, it would become more like her throne, for she became the Queen of all Millbrook news, and all Enquirer news as well.

She could be pretty accurate in predicting the sexes of pregnant women too! Many reading this may have even been one of her accurate predictions too! Please comment if you were one of the lucky ones!

And I can’t forget her love for those beloved Lotto numbers, and the thrill she got when one of her daily lottery customers actually won!

I hope many of you reading this one, will smile for that memory of your own winnings and my mother’s excitement for you when you came in to get your monies!

Thank you for all your cards of sympathy

My family would like to thank all that attended her services, that was the day before Thanksgiving last year, too.

As many of you that knew my mother, she never wanted any spotlight and attention,( Dad got that!) so I found it amusing that she got that because of the day before that major holiday of Thanksgiving!

I thank all that brought so much joy to her in her life too! Thank you!

There are so many Millbrook Memories for all of us to share with each other, and just hope and pray that all that find themselves here on this site will browse through all the images that I will be posting in the future.

And let me be perfectly clear there will be lots of images from my father’s collection, believe me!…
