To the editor:

Tonight and just about anything I have done or where I have been is on my mind.

Yet, one thing that stands out in my mind is the final brush strokes to the Veterans Memorial Rock on the east side of the Newton square. (Also, my goodbye to artist Penny Christensen and her husband, Russell.)

I have placed a PDF file at our Jasper County Historical Museum so others will know and see step-by-step how this artist accomplished her work of art.

I also enjoyed my short visits with Penny and Russell very much and I hope to hear from them again. What a great team and couple they are!

I plan to photograph all three sides of this work of art, of deep expression of feeling.

My personal thanks to both.
