"It was very exciting."Lucy Kachelman called her grandson "just a plain ordinary guy." During his visit Monday to the central Kansas nursing home, Gill signed autographs and gave a picture of himself and his band.

"We had hoped he would sing in our Christmas program," Kersenbrock said. "However, he was cutting a recording in Nashville so he couldn't be with us this time. Maybe next year."
