The Ripple Effect Continues
Charlene Morell, a local woman featured in our September/October issue for her living organ donation that sparked four others, wrote to Editor Shelley Basinger about what she described as the “amazing” article: “[Shannon] did a beautiful job capturing the full story and all that God wrote into our lives.”
And even better? One of the other donors mentioned in the article, Crysti, received a call at her job from someone who read our story and wanted to learn more about living organ donation for a loved one. “I know God is going to continue doing great things through this,” continued Charlene.
Welcome to Lynchburg
Mary Smith picked up a copy of the September/October issue at Neighbor’s Place: “Just wanted to say, being new to the area, Lynchburg Living is really great!”
Thanks for reading, Mary! We truly aspire for our magazine to be a resource for readers—from natives to newcomers.
Upon reading our feature about Stanhope Johnson, Carolyn Gills Frazier, author of Stanhope, chronologically, thanked us for a “lovely and lively” article on Lynchburg’s renowned architect.
She also let us in on an interesting connection found within the pages of the September/October issue: “The articles on Stanhope and Farmville have ties to each other. Stanhope designed the Weyanoke Hotel. Stanhope’s niece, Helen Bond Reveley, whom you quoted, is the mother of Taylor Reveley IV, who is the president of Longwood.”
Who knew? Thanks for sharing Carolyn!
