My special thanks goes to Louan Melton and her son Nickey for getting Charlie Phelps and his crew to build me a beautiful sidewalk. I have always heard that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. And to me ‘the beholder,’ I think my new sidewalk is beautiful. After waiting 61 years it is very special to me. This morning I got my crutches and took a stroll on my new treasure.

I would also like to say that I was really saddened with the passing of my special prayer partner, Bill Wakefield.

Every evening at 7 p.m. he always called me and he would pray such beautiful prayer for my son and me. My special condolences go to Bill’s sweet wife, Jackie, and their daughter and grandson.

This old woman has so many nice people to thank and all the help they have provided me since my precious husband, Huey Goodman, passed away almost 6 years ago overwhelm me.

God bless each of you and from the bottom of my heart I say Thank You.

Ernestine Goodman
