We were lucky to have them all in our midst.

R.I.P. to all these fine people. They all made a difference and will be missed.

A lovely group of wonderful neighbors. RIP to all.

There was a fully lit Christmas tree inside Mr. Edwards's plant shop last week. It was beautiful, but it made me so sad. His store is one of the prettiest in the whole EV, but soon it will be gone, I fear.

A lovely group of people, indeed. The city is less of a place without them.
