Editor’s Note – January 10th, 2020
I hope everyone had a great Christmas and a wonderful New Year! The Sams household was blessed with family on Christmas and New Years and all having a great time. I really believe holidays are to enjoy your family more than to receive gifts or to have parties. The end of 2019 ended great and looking forward to a wonderful prosperous New Year with family and friends.

We lost a great friend this week, Richard (Rick) Lewis. Rick was diagnosed with cancer in 2017 and gave weeks to live, but Rick was a fighter and chose to try experimental cancer treatments and though he suffered dearly and had a heart attack during this time, he fought hard. Rick owned the woodworking shop at Mink Shoals and was one of the most talented carpenters I’ve ever seen. Rick and his son built my hickory kitchen cabinets, my bedroom suit, desk, quilt racks, my wrap around decks on our house, and much more. Please say a prayer for his family especially his son Wade. You will be greatly missed Rick, Rest in Peace.
Until the next issue…Keep Smiling!
