Hope your weekend was good … We, my bride and I along with other family members, were pleasantly surprised when we were informed we were going to be great-grandparents, for us the first time. Our great-granddaughter, expected in late March … Can’t wait … Brooks and Katie Hester are the proud parents-to-be. We share with Glenn and Betty Jo Cain of Bladenboro…
