Opinion Letters

I wish to express how proud I am to be a member of this community and Amercan Legion Post 108. We, here in Macon County set the bar high for the rest of the stops on the A.T. for the “Warrior Hikers.”

Saturday, March 30, was a great success. Carlie Nicols and the ladies of “Quilts of Valor,” presented a quilt to each hiker and a “Bandana of Valor” to Cooper (Service Dog). Mr. Loyd Hall cooked an awesome barbecue enjoyed by all.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to all of those who helped my family and me during my time of illness. I would like to thank the churches, ministers, my friends, extended family members and anonymous brothers and sisters in Christ that upheld me in their prayers.

I appreciate the thoughtfulness and support everyone has given me; not only through prayers, but visits, phone calls and cards of encouragement, food and continued offers of help during my recovery.
