Bell Buckle loses a fine lady with Thelma Haskins' passingPosted Monday, December 12, 2011, at 2:00 PM
Many of you may not even know that you know her, but if you saw a small framed woman walking on Hwy 82 between Haskins Auto Salvage and Bell Buckle, it was most likely her.
I rarely saw her when she did not have something in her hands that was thrown on the side of the road. While her walking was probably for health reasons, she probably was the key reason that stretch stayed clean.
When we first came to Bell Buckle 18+ years ago, we were outsiders to some, but never to Thelma. I can not think of a time that we were not greeted with a charming, infectious smile and I would bet that smile met everyone.
As often happens when things occur on the weekend, we missed the news until Sunday's paper and details were not set at that time. We learn now that we missed our opportunity to show our respects and we apologize to her family.
