Mornings won’t be the same for Carrie Helms.
Helms was used to seeing her boss and county treasurer, R.E. “Dick” Rowell, stop by the office each morning about 10 a.m. She said the office staff would always greet him the same way.
“They’d holler to him, ‘Good morning, Mr. Rowell,’ and he’d brighten up and just grin from ear to ear,” Helms said. “That just tickled him every time.”
