Very sad week indeed- with the passing of Margie Wyandt who had been writing the Cresson News column for many years. She was often outspoken, which was good, and her pet peeves would always point out something that needed fixed. My sympathy is extended to all of her family and friends.

Sympathy is also sent to the family and friends of Mary Gall who recently died in Lancaster. Mary had lived on George Street as long as I can remember.

My sister, Monica, who lives less than a mile from me, sent a Christmas card to my house on December 22. Lo and behold! It arrived on February 18th. Just shy of two months in the postal system. The card’s envelope was stamped “Miss sent to Thailand” A 17,000 mile journey to go a couple blocks.
