In Fond Memory

Nelle Harper Lee

1926 ~ 2016

With a sad heart we report that one of our longest Fair & Square Club members, Harper Lee, passed away 2/19/2016.  Harper and I were pen-pals for nearly 11 years. 

The Gray Ghost and Stoners Boy were her favorite adventure stories.  Attesting to that, Harper wrote Seckatary Hawkins into TKAM as the closing moral example.  It is the lesson all F&S Club members have espoused since the beginning of the F&S Club.
