The many trials of a long, rough winter PDF Print E-mail

It has been a rough winter in so many ways. The weather has been the main topic with the freezing and below freezing temperatures, along with ridiculous amounts of snow and ice but several of our friends and neighbors have had a rough time as well. Bob Virgin, after having truck problems, became trapped in the snow and was very fortunate to have someone come along and transport him to the hospital. Sarah Mefford was involved in a head-on collision and fortunately there were no fatalities but all parties have spent extensive time in the hospital and will take some time to fully recuperate. Lastly, our lovely Becca Hardwick suffered a stroke and everyone in the community is sending out prayers and love for her. Saturday night's Candlelight Prayer Service on the square was a moving service showing how neighbors and friends band together to provide support when one of our own needs it most. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Rebecca and her parents, Jan and Sam. We are also thinking of Bob & his family as well as Scotty and Sarah. Be well and recover. Let's hope that spring is a kinder season in Virginia.
