Happy Thanksgiving everybody

This morning as I was reading my Akron Beacon Journal, I came across this article by my favorite sports/religion columnist, Terry Pluto. He was thanking all his readers, whether they bought the paper or read it online. I enjoy Terry's columns. As a man of faith, I am convinced that he is the real deal, as I've seen him in action at personal appearances, getting chairs for folks to sit in, and paying attention to those others would not give the time of day to.

Terry Pluto also goes to the Summit County Jail to minister to the inmates on a weekly basis. One of those who helps Terry minister is a young lady named Gloria Williams. Gloria ministers in song. She also works at Sam's Club in Fairlawn, passing out samples. You only have to be talking to Gloria for a few seconds to tell that she really loves the Lord. She also remembers everybody she meets and will ask about your particular situation.

We can all be thankful for people like that.
