Something to think about: A face to remember

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted,” graced the neon-yellow T-shirts of more than 70 young people who spent their spring break in a labor of love — transforming the Missouri Flat mill houses area on Wedge Hill off Missouri Flat Road from dilapidated to cheerful.
