Trust fund for Joseph Kelly Sallee Any help would be greatly appreciated. God bless you all. I could not write a column for last week's paper because of a death in the family. It was so unexpected that we were absolutely grief-stricken, unable to do anything except what was necessary. For several days, I didn't give any thought to my plants, until I noticed a pot by the steps with wilted plants in it. After watering that pot, I looked around and saw that most of the other potted plants (indoors and out) were suffering from lack of water. So I got my watering cans and gave them all a life-giving drink and gained some comfort for myself, while my mind was occupied with the simple task of saving my plants. The physical activity was beneficial, too; doctors know it helps calm the mind and soothe the nerves. Looking at these beautiful hills is always a comfort to me. My dearly beloved grandson had said long ago he wanted to be buried in these West Virginia hills some day, but we didn't know it would be so soon. Psalm 121:1-8 (King James Version) (1)  I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. (2) My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth. (3) He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. (4)  Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep. (5) The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand. (6) The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night. (7) The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul. (8) The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
