Letter to the editor

Dear Friends,

We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and everyone who have been our loyal customers for over 46 years. We have made so many dear friends over the years and we certainly will never forget them.

We began the business in a small one room building, selling fish bait and over the years it grew into a retail business we could have never foreseen. But with the years comes change. Betty Jean and I had to retire a few years ago for health reasons and we turned the business over to our son, Lamar (for which the business was named) and our grandson, Jeremy. They also had a good business, but our son Lamar has some health issues him and so reluctantly they decided it was time to close the family business.

Thank you again for your support over the years and our prayer is that God will richly bless and keep each and every one of you.

Sincerely,

The Jack L. Cope Family
