Our sympathy goes to the family of Helen Kimball Houston, who passed away in February. In her last Christmas letter, Helen described her trip to the top of Cannon Mountain for her grandson's wedding. To be ready for 20-degree temperatures, Helen was dressed in fleece pants, her daughter's boots, mittens, hat, and scarf. Sue had loaned her a parka. Four strong young men carried her in her wheelchair from where the tramway stopped to the observation tower through three-to-four-foot snowdrifts. Helen enjoyed the beautiful winter scenery, as well as the wedding.
