I know I am but one among countless (former) young boys, and even some girls, that used to pedal our bikes held together with borrowed parts from older brother's and sister's bikes in order to deliver papers for the Sentinel. What a wonder, for my young eyes to see the machinery printing. And there was amongst the noise of the press was always Mrs. King. There to help every young entrepreneur settle his or her bi-weekly account. We learned much from you Mrs. King, To show up to work on time, every time. To be fiscally responsible, and yes, sometimes how to be compassionate to persons on "collect" days when they were behind. One last time, thank you and God bless.
