Judson was a son of Andrew Jackson and Fanny Cunningham Moore and a grandson of Isaac and Bethiah Moore. Judson served his country in WWI, and his lungs were weakend by gas while he was in France. When I remember Judd, he lived at the foot of Perkins Hill and had a large store there. He taught in the Perkins One Room School as long as he was able. My 1930 census states that: Judson was 40; his wile, Iva, 29; son, Earl, 8; Frank, 6; Marie, 4; Richard, 2; and Eloise, 1. The Gilmer County Mar- riage Book states that W.J. Moore, 27, and Iva Henderson, 16, were mar- ried November 18, 1917. Judson is buried in the Oak Grove Cemetery, and his grave-marker states that he was born June 8, 1889, and died Oc- tober 9, 1935. We have been having lots of lovely fall weather, and wildflowers are deco- rating the roadsides; there are white and purple Asters, yellow Goldenrod and yellow wild Sunflowers, white Thoroughwort and Snakeroot, and I've seen several red seedpods of Jack-in- the-Pulpit that the deer have missed. We do not have many apples, but gardens have really done well this year. My bees have their hive full of honey and are waiting for Tim to get time to rob them. Don Bailey's cane patch looks like it is getting ripe; he will soon be making molasses. George Melton called and said he has a picture of Glenville's dentist, Dr. Withers. The picture was taken on a deer hunt in Virginia. My 15 calves are on their way to a feedlot. They were sold on a board sale some time ago. Son Tim and Bobby Beall hauled theln to Servia and put them on a truck this week. I will miss them.

By Claudia Rock Vadis Welcome, Fall Hello Ya'll! Happy Fall ! I know it's not here yet, but it's fast approaching. Fall is my favorite season--the bright colors of the trees, the coolness, the smell of leaves burningiI just love it. On September 13, I turned 62 years old. Now, to some of you, that seems ancient; however, I don't feel ancient. My mind is young, and I'd still climb trees if I could. The spirit is willing, but the body's weak. Still, I thank God for the health I do have. Do people still sit on porch swings in the cool of a fall evening? We used to. Sitting on the porch with family and friends gave you a feeling of peace and contentment. Sometimes I think the world is moving too fast to enjoy such simple pleasures. Before I any of you have a place to rent out? A family I know needs a place DESPERATELY. They have to have shelter by Septem- ber 30. This nice couple have two children and family pets. They would consider a place to rent with the op- tion to buy. Please help them if you can; call me or email me for more information. Saturday night, I did something I' ve never done before. I went on a night four wheeler ride. Talk about fun! It was a neighborhood event put on by two dear friends of mine. There were several people who took part, and everyone enjoyed themselves. We had a bonfire and cooked hot dogs after- ward. Good times with good people. I'd like to close with a joke my friend emailed me: Wooden Leg Insurance A man and his wife moved back home to West Virginia from Ohio. The husband had a special wooden leg, and the cost to insure it back in Father Ed By: Joseph J. Mazze!la Father Ed, the priest of the church I attended as a child, passed away this Summer. He will be missed by many, including me. I can still see him so clearly in my heart and mind. Tall, thin, quiet, friendly, and smart with thinning hair and thick glasses, he always looked more like an engineer than a priest. He was a great lover of classical music. One of my most vi- brant memories of him was a long trip we took together over curvy, moun- tainous roads. Father Ed was steering the car with one hand and directing with the other, while Beethoven's 9th Symphony serenaded us from his cas- sette deck. Looking back now I can still feel his spirit swaying in his body while the music played. Father Ed's greatest love, however, was the tireless work he did for God. He preached, wrote columns and books, visited prisons, taught in schools, and ministered everywhere for the love of God, from the streets of Indianapolis to the hills of West Vir- ginia. It was these mountains and their people that touched his heart the most deeply, though, and I am happy that he was able to end his work on Earth here. He did the very best work he could every single day. Even though his body aged, worn down, and fi- natly surrendered to death, his spirit never did. FatherEd may have left us now. but his work goes on. The work we do for the love of God never ends, but thank- fully, God's love for us never ends, either. God's love not only produces the best work, but also the best people. Father Ed was one of them. Thinking of Father Ed reminds me that we are more than just these bod- ies that carry us around. We are spirits dancing in the flesh. We are more than just the work we do. We are the love of God working inside of us. We are more than just these lives we live. We are the love we give and the joy we share every moment of them. God bless you, Father Ed. We miss you. Mazzella is a freelancer from Nicho- las Co. He is a Glenville State Col- lege alumnus.
