It was a great loss to our community when the Rev. Stone Carr and Dr. Bob Proffitt passed away within days of each other last month. I was not fortunate enough to know Rev. Carr, but Dr. Proffitt was a personal friend.
In these sad days of diminished celebrations of life for our loved ones, I am thankful for a newspaper that honors our community servants with front-page stories. I doubt that either would have sought the honor, but I believe both would have been very pleased. Thank you.
