WV 737 - 3251 ForethoughYHomesteaders Pre-Planning Fthneral Service Center C. Daniel Reasner III, DirectorOwner Pete A. Baldwin, Funeral Director There's a legend about a man who carelessly allowed himself to become round-shouldered. So he commissioned an artist to cast a statue of him in a beautifully straight position. When it was delivered, he hid it in his garden. Every day he'd gaze upon himself standing straight. Without knowing it, he would straighten up as he looked at the statue. One day his granddaughter found him looking at it. "Grandpa," she cried, "you're standing straight, like the statue." Would you like to stand straight morally? Then put your trust in the Lord, and spend time every day with your eyes "fixed on Jesus," our Lord and Savior! 8th Annual Voice Of The Mountains Set The 8th Annual "Voice of the Mountains" Storytelling Festival will be held October 10, 11, 12 at picturesque WVU Jackson's Hill in central West \\;:irginia.
