E.E. Hinkle Goes to The Ponderosa In the Sky (1902-2006)
It's the end of an era in Holabird. Our oldest citizen, Emory Evert "E.E." Hinkle has gone from this world into the next. All the worries and cares he had are gone. He was 103.
Funeral services are pending at this time.
He has left his family, friends and neighbors with a legacy that will be difficult to live up to. His simple faith, love, hope, courage, and integrity shined light like a beacon in an increasingly dark world.
Even though he is gone as we mere mortals say, there is a part of him that is always with us. Even those who have never met him have said that they feel they know him through the Front Page of our little Newsblog.
Our Publisher was told about 45 minutes before E.E.'s spirit left the body to say "good-bye" to his grandfather. Instead he said, "See you later!". Indeed, he and those who are right with Jesus, will see him later.

I am sorry to hear about E.E. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and yours. What a wonderfully long life he was blessed with. Take care.
