Couple recieves ramp, a portrait
John and Betty Blackburn of Munith hold hands while relaxing in each other's company on their porch while members of the Stockbridge American Legion build the couple a new wheelchair access ramp Saturday at their home. John and Betty, both in their 70s, were diagnosed with cancer within the last two months, and mobility has become a problem. "It's just amazing what they are doing for us," she said. "We don't even know these people. It's overwhelming to me, the amount of labor they must put in. It makes me so happy, I can't help but smile."
