It has been a wonderful show of support and help at Stella Huie’s effort to get her house torn down so that rebuilding may get started soon.

God Bless all the workers.

As Memorial Day passes, don’t forget all the fallen soldiers and first responders who have given their lives for our freedom and safety.
