I just want to thank you for the beautiful life stories you’ve written in recent issues. I’ve lived in this area for my whole life and knew both these ladies to recognize them, but loved hearing of their interesting lives. The picture of Rachel Swedlove brought back memories of walking in to the store and seeing her there. I had no idea of her history (as a teen who was intimidated by here).
Thank you for bringing these people “alive” again. Their memory will live on and I’m sure their families will treasure these stories.
