The family of Dorothy Strong would like to thank everyone who came to the visitation and funeral for Mom. Thank you for the cards, phone calls, and your thoughts and prayers.

Also, thank you to the people of Grace Christian Church for the delicious luncheon. Thank you to Pastor Dave Mead for the meaningful, loving message from the heart service, a real comfort to the family and to Pastor Phil Hortop for the Word of God.

Special thanks to Alec Gary at Hall-Kokotovich Funeral Home. All the support was appreciated.

Societies progress

To the Editor:

Historians tell us that all great nations fail from the inside out.

I found this sequence published a year ago. 

It begins

Societies progress

From bondage to great spirit

From a spiritual faith to grant courage

From great courage to attendance

From abundance to selfishness

From selfishness to complacency

From complacency to apathy

From apathy to bondage

How do you access our nation’s position in this 200-year cycle.

I almost quote.

William W. Quinn

Lt. Gen. U.S. Army retired

Thank you William and to all citizens of our great country. THINK. Our democracy is in ICU.
