It's with our deepest sadness that we have lost the oldest and dearest person, Alta Brown, she was 96 years old. On June 9, 2019, she received the Boston Post Cane as the oldest resident in the town of Morrill. Alta was a very loving and caring person. She will be deeply missed by everyone. Our deepest sympathy goes out to her family.

Congratulations to Regina Nugent and Trey Harford on the birth of their son Lennox Michael Paul Harford. Grandparents are Paul Harford and Jill Harford of Swanville, great-nana is Jenese Harford of Morrill, and great-grandparents are Lee and Helen Robinson of Swanville.

I want to thank the nice gentleman at Ocean State Job Lot that helped my mom load bags into our van. He came out of Ocean State and was telling my mom not to lift the bags, he will do it for her. It was so nice of him to help us out — those bags of mulch are heavy. I'm so glad to see people are still helping out other people and the many smiles I've seen.

Everyone, hope you're enjoying this nice weather. Have an awesome week.
