Sheila, you and your family are in my prayers. She and Binkie used to come in the pharmacy in Old Fort when I worked there and they were both sweet ladies.

June deeply touched all of us at Foothills Conservancy and will live on and touch the lives of all who love nature and animals and who depend on the clean waters of the Catawba River through the June Carol Adams Preserve. I am so sorry that we didn't know about her passing in time to attend the memorial service. We will continue to remember and honor her as we steward the lands she so loved.
