Hello everyone,

Another week has passed, as has been said. The leaves are mostly blown off the trees here now. Still beautiful sunsets. People are busy cleaning up and preparing for the colder weather. Time flies by. Apples are available in abundance, as are potatoes, squash, onions and more.


Our condolences go out to the family of Robert “Bob” Richardson Jr., who passed away at Dexter Health Care on October 26. He was 79 and my family will miss him. My boys remember the fun times with him, fishing, camping and other outdoor activities. There was always excitement with Bob. May he finally rest in peace.

Our condolences to the family of Brendon Coffin, 22, son of Crystal, and his siblings. His grandparents are Calvin and Gerry Clark from the city. He gave the gift of life to others. Think of everyone at this time. His mother works at Mammie’s Country Kitchen in Unity.

I think of Clayton Wentworth at the loss of his brother, Bernard of Wisconsin.
