    Reading of the passing of Virginia Ritchison Bex brought back many memories that I shared with her-memories of Huron school, and King’s Ridge, Bowden Hill, and Coulter Hill in those low geared school buses driven by Hugh Mefford and later Alfred Carter. WPA employed the skills of Hobart (my father), and Herbert King to sand and finish the new gymnasium floors. May God be with Virginia’s family in the way only He can know they need Him most.
