In Memory...

The sweet woman who brought me to FHU 11 years ago died at her home yesterday after a long fight with cancer.  She was all I could think about on this morning's walk.  Rumor has it that she used to jog in her neighborhood, carrying a trash bag.  When she saw litter (which was seemingly everywhere she turned), she'd stop & pick it up.  Couldn't leave well enough alone.  Bless her.  In her memory today, I carried my own trash bag (a Wal-Mart bag) & decided to snag every piece of litter I encountered.  The haul included a piece of styrofoam, a church bulletin, and a zipper.  Thank you, Hope, for not being too proud to run through our town, looking like a bag lady.
