We were fortunate last Wednesday and Thursday that we only got a little over 4 inches of snow. Part of this was that Wednesday night we had an inch of sleet fall instead of snow. It was still messy driving Friday.

ESTELLA E. JOHNSON

In Memory

ESTELLA  E. JOHNSON

May 19, 1916 -

March 24, 2013

Do not ask if we miss her,

Oh, there is such a vacant place;

Oft we think we hear her footsteps,

And we can see her smiling face.

Days of sadness oft come o’er us,

Tears in silence often flow;

Memory keeps her ever near us,

Though she died one year ago.
