Happy 46th wedding anniversary greetings to Mary and Henry Konopelski, as November is their big month. I remember attending their wedding on a cool, crisp Saturday in the old Leoville Hall. Mary celebrated her 84th birthday at the end of September. She grew up on a farm in Ranger country, near Leoville. Her maiden name is Metrunee and she still has family members residing on the family farm. Ninety-two-year-old Henry and Mary are happy to still be living on their farm five miles from me with the assistance of Carmel, Mary’s niece, a retired school teacher.
