A great one
To the editor: This letter is a tribute to one of the most amazing ladies I ever met. Anytime, anywhere you met Bonnylynn Mars, you knew you had met someone very special. She could make you laugh and she could listen to you when you needed a friend. She was so involved with so many things in the Oregon area, it would be surprising if she had not touched every one of us.
Bonnylynn liked the wooden items my husband turned, and no matter how many she bought, won or was given, there was always a great thank-you note to “Mr. George.” It would take too long to tell all the ways she touched my life and I am positive she touched many more.
It will be hard to imagine life without her, but I know she is up there right now, laughing in that infectious way only she had. Bonnylynn never stopped living, loving and caring. Would that I could be remembered with half of the love she engendered in her lifetime.
God took a great one this time.
To the editor: In the evening’s twilight May 7, people sat at linen-clothed tables eating pie or cake, drinking the non-alcoholic beverage of their choice being served by polite young people and listening to beautiful musical notes floating from the instruments being played by the Woodmore High School Jazz Band.
Louie Armstrong would have been proud.
With only the lights being used by the musicians, the audience sat in a darkened hall listening to the Jazz Band play under the direction of Ken Emerine. You would have thought you were in New Orleans.
Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church has opened its doors for several years so there could be an Evening of Jazz for the community. What a blessing to have such a wonderful opportunity in our own backyard.
