Nick Caldwell, 69, has been a fan of John Deere tractors going back to when he was growing up on his family’s farm in Calvary. Caldwell is now staying at Springfield Nursing and Rehab. Members of the nursing home and Communicare Specialzed Services’s/PASRR staff worked with Limestone FLW, a John Deere dealer in Springfield, to bring a tractor to the nursing home on May 13. Bradley Warren of Limestone drove the tractor to the nursing home. Caldwell repeated, “John Deere” and “Oh boy” when he saw the tractor in the parking lot. Bernadine Thomas, one of Caldwell’s sisters, said he will talk about this day for a long time. “It’s the thrill of his life,” Thomas said.
