From Margie Ward

By Staff | Jul 1, 2009

We hear all the bad things about our young people these days. But I must tell you about what a special little girl has done. Last year I broke my leg and had to have a number of surgeries on her summer vacations last year. She has been to all my surgeries, doctor appointments, between Wetzel County and Marietta Hospital. Sometimes getting up at six in the morning and always pushing the wheelchair even when I needed to go shopping.

Her name is Courtney Slider and she just turned 11 years old. She is my special angel and has been taught well by her grandpa and parents. She is very special and I’m sure if God had a wallet, her picture would be in it.

Thanks Courtney for spending your summer vacation thinking of others.
