A big loss
 To the editor: Tivis “Butch” Sloan passed away on Jan. 30, and I lost a very dear friend.
 The Sloans lost the patriarch of its family, leaving a big void for the next generation to carry on. The village of Walbridge lost a community activist and staunch supporter of all that is good in this world.
 Butch, I know you missed Paulette, and she you. Enjoy eternity together with all the praise and glory it has to offer. I won’t say goodbye, just “I’ll see ya later, my friend.”

A “beary” big hero

 To the editor: Recently, Kmart had a Christmas markdown, and I went to purchase 24 large teddy bears to donate to the Ronald McDonald House. As I was filling my cart, a gentleman was getting two bears for his granddaughters, and somehow, we got talking and I told him why I was getting so many.  After I told him, he put several bears in his cart. I made a comment to him about getting so many, and he said, “If you are taking them there, I will get some.” At the check-out, he told me he would pay for all of them. I was in shock.  I ended up with 34 teddy bears, which I took that night to the Ronald McDonald House. They were shocked, I think because I had called them earlier in the day to see if they would accept the bears and I think perhaps they were thinking I would bring a few small bears.  They said the kids would be able to cuddle the bears, which would provide them with warmth and a secure feeling.  I am sorry that I never asked the gentleman his name, but the Lord knows who he is. I am so thankful for him.
