‘Circle of life’ can feel cruel sometimes
Last week, I announced the birth of another great-grandson, Hudson Ross Haxby. This week, I need to tell you about two important people in my life who passed on the same day. Life, indeed, seems to be an unending circle.
One of our good friends, Marilyn Wenger Cooper, quietly slipped away Saturday, Aug. 8. She worked on and off for Jim and me at the Lorane Family Store for almost 40 years. She absolutely loved being part of our LFS family. Her health began failing a few years ago, but she fought to remain at the store for as long as possible. When she realized she no longer could handle the work, she had to quit, and it about broke her heart. Saying goodbye to her the day before she passed was extremely hard for Jim and me, but it was time and she was at peace. Rest in peace, Marilyn. We love you so.
