Response to the Gazette Article

Hanging on the wall in my apartment in Asheville, NC is a treasured photograph of "The Farm," my grandparent's home (which you bought from my family) . I grew up in West Cummington and my brother and sisters and I spent some of our happiest childhood times up there with two of the most special people in my life, my grandparents, who had remarkable lives themselves and raised six children there. My 20 first cousins all share memories of happy family get togethers there often during our childhoods.
