Today I read with interest the article by the Reverend Dr. Michael R Duncan and once again appreciated his ability with words. When I finish reading his articles, I always say to myself, "I wish I had written that." We are blessed to have such a Scribe as Dr. Duncan in Henry County who can put pin to paper and say what we have all been thinking. So, Michael, my friend, know that you are loved, revered and appreciated. You are a blessing to us all. Thank you.
