Fire takes the Ward's Lives and Home

Lamar and Dottie Ward just off Penton Road, lost their lives to fire on Nov. 23. This is a sad event. Fires have been very destructive in our community the last year. The Wards are wonderful people. Lamar used to help Mr. Walther out at the nursery in Chumuckla. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Ward family on their loss.
