Long Distance Inquiry
We were delighted to hear from a reader in Newport News! Charlie Rhodes, who told us he is in his upper 70s, sent us a letter. He was born in Lynchburg and still has many family members and friends who live in the area. He and his wife receive Lynchburg Living by mail and say they enjoy every issue! Charlie also wrote to us to get more information about the elderberry products mentioned in our September/October article “Natural Cold Cure?”. Thank you for your letter, Charlie. It made our day, and we were happy to help!
We were close to approving our September/October issue when we learned about an art show for Inez Blanks, a well-known local artist who passed away this past summer. Inez’s husband, Norris, sent Editor Shelley Basinger an email: “I want to say a huge thank you for the wonderful article you engineered and crafted at the last moment for Inez. I was so delighted and heartened to see it and felt immediately uplifted by your generosity in making it a reality on such short notice.”
Ellen Dorman, whose Campbell County home was featured in our September/October issue (“A Warm Welcome”), sent Editor Shelley Basinger a kind message:
“A sincere THANK YOU for the amazing feature! Charlotte’s words are absolutely beautiful and Heather’s photographs are stunning! Great work by all involved.”
In our Bridal Buzz section of the September/October issue, we accidentally omitted several credits to vendors on the Trend Alert page. We have included that page here with the appropriate mentions and hope you will consider reaching out to these local businesses if you are planning a wedding or event.
