Thank you from the family of Marsha Roberts

We would like to express our sincere thanks and gratitude for all who came to the funeral home, had prayer for us or with us, brought food, sent cards, sent flowers, keepsake mementos, purchased Gideon bibles, or just called to check on us during this trying time in our lives from the loss of our dear Marsha.

She lived life to the fullest as well as she could and wanted others to do the same. Life is but a whisper, so make every day count as though it would be your last. We had a lifelong saying: Go while you can go, Do while you can do, See while you can see. We all need to tell our spouse how much we love them every day. Hold your children closer everyday. Love and cherish your neighbors as though they were family

We would like to especially thank David, Cathy, Robert, and Daryl at Grissom-Martin Funeral Home for not only everything being professionally and courteously done, but for being friends of our family for years. A special thanks to Betty and Susan at Flowers 'N Things for making the flowers and everything else perfect. Marsha would be so proud of you all.

May God bless everyone,
James & Jamison Roberts

Mystery plant identified - edible and medicinal

Saturday this picture and question were posted, "Can anyone tell me what these are? In 13 years on Clifty Creek farm I've never seen it...” Readers gave suggestions and as Monday morning dawns, we have the answer.

By Miss By Donna Rieder


It is Conopholis Americana, the American cancer-root, also known as bear corn. It is a parasitic plant which, when blooming, resembles a pine cone or ear of corn. Identification thanks to Sara's letter.

The plant grows mostly from the roots of oak and beech trees (that's where I found it.)

It gets the name Squawroot from its usage by Native American women to treat menstrual cramps and assist childbirth. It's edible and has many medicinal properties. Good to know!
