Dear Editor,

It’s that time of year to pay for me to get my local news for another year.

My husband died in February 2018. I never knew how hard it is to go on after 59 years together, and I was looking forward to 60 years next year.

How everything must be done, sell our mobile home we bought in 2000 and remodeled from new roof, windows, doors, putting in new insulation and taking old out, along with new paneling. It was like new, flooring and carpet.

I had an office with all my family tree books. Now what to do with them when I am gone. Who will want them; so many good memories. Our family reunions and now we are the older generation. Hoping someone will keep these books, so many picture albums. Who will want these? By years, 59 books.

I have started new photo albums for our two children, four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren and another due in January. So many memories. We get them out to look at something we all remember.

But, life goes on. Sometimes we have to accept things and how it’s hard for us all. God has a plan and some things are for our good. God has blessed us all. We live in a great country. God bless America! May we all take time to thank God for all He has given to us.

I’m thankful I can still read my hometown paper and cheer the Cornhuskers on Saturday as they play hard to be our team and win.
