    I’m sorry I missed seeing this until it was too late to express my sincere sympathy.

    Condolences to Marge, who I worked with for many years at Scovill, and the rest of the family.

    God bless you in your time of loss.

    sorry for your loss. are you still with the bank? I know you used to be big in the Falcon Club when I worked at the Elk Valley Times if you remember all those years ago.
    I know you were a big Falcon booster and still are I think soccer and golf. Just wanted to let you know I write for the Murfreesboro Post now as a contributor.
