Holtsclaw family

apprecites help

To the Editor:

The family of Pauline Holtsclaw would like to thank everyone for all their acts of kindness during her illness. All of the many prayers, calls, food, flowers, donations to the Alzheimer's fund, and visits were greatly appreciated.

A special thank you goes to the doctors that gave her such good care over the many years. To all her many caregivers at Lyons Health and Living Center we could never thank you enough. You certainly treated Mom as if she were your own. We will miss you all!

Thank you to Chris Gehring for his many visits and for doing such a lovely service, and to the ladies at Bloomfield United Methodist Church for the bereavement luncheon. May God richly bless each and everyone of you as you have us.

Beulah & Lloyd Lucas & family

Darrel & Bonnie Holtsclaw & family

Thanks for helping

Crime Stoppers

To the Editor:

For four hours on Saturday, April 25, volunteers stood at intersections holding buckets collecting money for Greene County Crime Stoppers. The people who passed through the intersections couldn't have been nicer or more congenial.

Not once did I hear a disparaging word from anyone. Even in a bad economy the people of Greene County (and some from other areas in the region) gave freely and generously.

Truck drivers, weekenders, workers, young and old alike, they all seemed to have some spare change or a dollar or two to give. Some dumped whole containers of change into our buckets, some gave the change they had in their pockets, and some gave $10 or more to help this worthy cause. When it was all said and done, we raised enough money to keep paying for the tips that help solve crimes in every Greene County community.

So on behalf of Greene County Crime Stoppers, a big thank you goes out to the citizens of Greene County for their unprecedented support. Crime Stoppers has been very successful in providing everyday citizens the opportunity to give useful and important tips using a totally anonymous phone line. Those tips are then passed on to the law enforcement agencies that work to protect Greene County and its residents.

Crime Stoppers is totally not-for-profit, no salaries are paid to anyone and all the money raised stays in Greene County. So thank you to the volunteers, the members, and to everyone who gave and made the day successful. Our toll-free 24 hour tip line is 1-866-446-4672 and our Web site is www.greenecountycrimestoppers.com
