I recently got a call asking if the person or persons who took a special rock off the headstone of Russ Hart’s grave in the Wright Public Cemetery would please return it. The rock came from Russ’s farm and his daughter had painted it with flowers and the saying: “I Miss You Dad.” If you have this rock, or know of its whereabouts, please, please return it – no questions asked!
