Anniversary wishes to Clarance and Jane Jackson, Jan. 19, Bronx, Ny., 43 years. I wish you many more happy years together with God’s blessings. Happy anniversary!

Thought for the week: Don’t blame people for disappointing you. Blame yourself for expecting too much.


Where thou art, that is home. Home is any four walls that enclose the right person. Love begins at home and it is not how much we do, but how much love we put in that action.

Sympathy to all of the families who lost a loved one recently. Our heartfelt prayers and good wishes go out to you in your time of need. You have our deepest sympathy.

Have your news in to me by Friday at 9 p.m. at (434) 568-0596. Call or text me.
