Gone, But Never Forgotten

Hello everyone! This is Memorial Day weekend and I just want to recognize just a few of your friends and family that have passed on, but we have not forgotten.My column this week is dedicated to all who has loss someone. It doesn’t matter if it was last week, last year or many years ago our heart still misses them. Everyone displayed on my page this week were not only friends of mind but a family member, a love one or a friend of yours. You who read my columns every week know that I care and remembered too. These are just a few of the love ones we all lost. Save for your archives. To conclude my Memorial Column, you all are invited to the Memorial Service/Concert for Ethel Ennis Arnett. Pass the word to all of the musicians.
