Dear Bob,

Just wish I could occupy the "abandoned house on Beech". My great grandparents at one time owned property in the area and the last time I visited the site of the home place and went up to the cemetery everything was still so beautiful.

I love those West Virginia hills, they are still so majestic and grand. And if I could, I would come back and inhabit and occupy the vacant place.

Keep up the good work of the Herald. Since we can't always come back, at least it keeps those precious memories fresh in our minds and hearts of better times.
