My Take

DiVoran Lites

In 1963, We settled in Titusville, Florida. We liked Park Avenue Church, where family groups formed. Dwayne and his sweet wife Jenny taught us many wonderful songs in ours. Not long ago, Dwayne said he was grateful for the grand piano at the hospital because of the practice that makes it easier for him to play when he needs to. (God has given him a dear second wife.

Reporter Flora Reigada interviewed our friend for a local paper. The blue headline below is a link to the article in Senior Life Newsletter where you may read the entire article.




Parrish Medical Center has continued its free piano concerts, which were paused during the pandemic. Each Wednesday, pianist Dwayne Crouse plays hymns, classic selections, and love songs to relax those waiting for diagnostic tests. 

Pianist Dwayne Crouse could not resist seeing a piano just sitting there and no one playing it. So he has volunteered to play it, bringing back regular live piano concerts to Parrish Medical Center’s atrium, which had been stopped during the coronavirus pandemic. 

The free concerts are from ten a. m. to noon on Wednesdays.

Although he and his current wife, Lisa, have residences in Titusville and North Carolina, Crouse considers Titusville home.

DiVoran has been writing for most of her life. Her first attempt at a story was when she was seven years old and her mother got a new typewriter. DiVoran got to use it and when her dad saw her writing he asked what she was writing about. DiVoran answered that she was writing the story of her life. Her dad’s only comment was, “Well, it’s going to be a very short story.” After most of a lifetime of writing and helping other writers, DiVoran finally launched her own dream which was to write a novel of her own. She now has her Florida Springs trilogy and her novel, a Christian Western Romance, Go West available on Amazon. When speaking about her road to publication, she gives thanks to the Lord for all the people who helped her grow and learn.  She says, “I could never have done it by myself, but when I got going everything fell beautifully into place, and I was glad I had started on my dream.”
