To the editor:
I live in McKinney now, but I am getting the Herald-Banner.
Tuesday’s paper had Martha Louise Mason’s obituary. She was a beautiful woman and I knew her when she was involved with the Methodist Youth Fellowship at the Lee Street Methodist Church on Lee Street in Greenville. I was all of 14 years old. Her husband and she were so nice.
We would play volleyball and have fellowship inside the church. There would always be refreshments. I always had my eye on Linda Waddle, but I digress. I was baptized in that church.
Lee Street Methodist is now Westview United Methodist Church of which I am still a member. My mother and I would go there nearly every Sunday.
She is now in heaven with my mother and Jesus and all the other beautiful people.
I am blessed every day with what I have. Food, shelter, and clothes are sometimes taken for granted. The Lord has brought me through some tough times, Vietnam, the passing of my brother, my mother, father and all my grandparents. He will get Mrs. Mason’s family through the time of grieving. He did me.

Health services kudos
I am writing this letter of appreciation because two weeks ago I had my second knee replacement surgery within six months.
Kill the YMCA project
In addressing the city council on July 8th, YMCA board president Andy Bench made a bold and highly questionable claim that raised a red flag in my mind. He referenced the alleged financial commitment made by The Greenville Independent School District to help pay for his proposed $15 million taxpayer funded YMCA.
Applaud Court’s return to interpretive sanity
I applaud the Supreme Court’s return to Constitutional interpretive sanity in its recent finding in favor of Hobby Lobby and other closely held companies, to decline to pay for certain medications that they believe violate their religious beliefs.
Take care of children crossing over border
The beautiful little Hispanic children coming across the border from Mexico and South America…
Not too late to stop proposed YMCA center
n your Wednesday edition, reporter Brad Kellar briefly touched on the comments of Dr. Jerry Ransom at Tuesday’s city council meeting.
Perkins should abstain from YMCA vote
What if you were a judge? What if you were also Board President of a non profit organization?
Say no to YMCA on Tuesday
An April 28, 2013 ad in the Herald Banner stated that the YMCA/Event Center bond would only add an additional 2.5 cents to the Greenville property tax rate.
When I moved back to Greenville after living 17 years in South Texas, I took the advice of my friend, Dr. Bill Thorn, who advised me to become an expert in some field. It didn’t matter what.
Freedom of religion
