The Logan County Board of DD recently honored four individuals who passed away in the last year. Friends, family members and employees gathered at the memorial garden to remember Ione Pence, Jane Cotterman, Mary Frost and Jack Harris. Christi McGill prepared remarks about Pence, Nancy Evans Donley shared her favorite memories of Cotterman, Lisa Manns recalled what she loved about Frost and Abby Alexander tearfully described her time with Harris.
Superintendent Saul Bauer said of each honoree, “In this life they loved all people, no matter race, ability or creed. They welcomed with open arms, with joy and with hugs.”
Participants said a prayer, sang songs, blew bubbles and released a few balloons in honor of the individuals. The solar light in the garden will be left in the memorial garden for the next 5 days.
