Sad Loss

Hi Mike:
Please allow me to express my sincere condolences to Howard, Shelley, and the Hampton family on the death of George.
As a former resident (and reporter), I fondly recall seeing Mr. Hampton almost every weekend at the Clover Valley Farmers’ Market, as well as many other events around the district.
He also used to drop into the Times’ office at least once a month and was always a welcome sight to the staff.
Borderland has lost one of its most prominent citizens, as well as a decent man who raised a decent family, and will be a little poorer for it.
