Ladies and gentlemen, the ice and snow have vanished in the old Strange Cemetery and have been replaced by sunshine, green grass – and my great-great-great-uncle, Dr. Sigel Roush, who has been dead since 1954 and has been in repose in the Barnes Cemetery in Fairview about a mile or so away. Well, except he isn’t in repose just now, is he? At this point, I’d rather not go over and look.

    Ladies and gentlemen, a biting wind blows and the icy grass crunches under foot on a cold winter’s day in the Strange Cemetery. Icicles cling to some of the monuments in that old graveyard, which is really not as strange as its name. After walking a rather short distance on a rather dreary day, an old tombstone appears of George Roush, a pioneer of the Russell Station area and my great-great-great-grandfather.

    Our commander in chief has often been chided on his position on illegal immigration and border security. But at least he’s trying to do something about the problem. The chiders might feel differently if it’s their husband, wife, son, daughter, mom, dad, brother, sister or friend who is in the wheelchair – or the casket.

    Ladies and gentlemen, it seems only fitting and appropriate that the Rev. William Franklin “Frank” Foust was born on a Sunday. God only knows how many sermons that man preached over the years. I’m sure He kept count.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as a longtime pastor in Highland County, the Rev. Frank Foust preached countless sermons over a half century. During those years, he saw many moments of joy – he officiated marriages and baptized souls into Christ – yet he was also on hand for times of sorrow as he conducted a multitude of funerals.

    Ladies and gentlemen, the last time we chatted about Pricetown, Fort Salem and the Gossett family of the days of yore, we talked a little bit about William Franklin “Frank” Foust, the man who married Worth and Sarah Gossett’s eldest daughter.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as I brave the snow and wintry air on this cold, cold morning, the temperature reads minus-8 degrees Fahrenheit with a wind chill of a biting minus-21.

    It’s fairly safe to assume, however, that each of us has been guilty of doing just that – wasting time and squandering moments of opportunity. Yes, it’s also true that life is short and the older we get the more we feel it, especially as we get set to observe the ineluctable conclusion to the year that was and turn our attention to the one that looms just before us.

    I remember the all happiness and joy of the season and spending time with family and loved ones. And I remember the reason for the season. That’s what is important. Merry Christmas, everyone.

    Ladies and gentlemen, Christmas was indeed a glorious time for my great-great-grandmother, Sarah Ann Roberts Gossett, and her family. “Grandma” Gossett was born in 1843 down in the hills of Highland County, where she lived practically all of her life.
