  • So Sorry, I am out of town. You were the wings beneath my feet Grace. I could not have accomplished the goals we set for the Village of Ashley without you. You were my eyes and ears for two (2) terms as Mayor. We had many good years together in the Mayors office. You were the boss and I just did what you told me. I will surely miss you but know you are with the angels. God’s speed my dear.
