Letter to the Editor - Goodbye to a gifted writer

It was with a great deal of sadness that I learned of Karlene Hale’s death today. For years she was a columnist for this newspaper, and many times after her illness made it impossible for her to continue, the calls continued,  inquiring about her.

She was a gifted writer, and her columns were lively reminiscences about local life as lived long ago -- the dalliances of the time, being served at the curb, lessons from her grandmother and holiday recollections of another time.

She will be greatly missed.
