Letter: Remembering Joseph Payne

Marjorie Payne writes:
My sons and I appreciate the City of Columbia and Mayor Hoots and all those involved with recognizing the citizens of Columbia/Adair county for their military service. Not only was Joe proud of his military service but he was a proud Adair Countian. To see his picture hanging there in the city, as if he's watching what's going on is wonderful!

His legacy will live on, in the work that he did for his beloved community. He was always willing to help those in need. All the committees and boards he served on was impacted by his dedication. His most proud accomplishment was founding the Agape House Pregnancy Resource Center and to see that it is still going strong and helping those in need is very rewarding! Again, thank you Adair Community, Mayor Hoots and you Linda for always being there for the Payne family! -Marjorie
