EJTU has been advised of the passing of an old buddy. Coal died peacefully at the age of 14. A regular at the stockings, cleanups and restoration projects at Glen Gray Road, Coal was always one of the crew. As a puppy he would dash across the front yard, swim the width of the river and emerge ready for a handout of a donut. As he got older he showed his intelligence by passing up the donuts for a good scratching behind his ears. Coal was never aggressive but knew how to use his big black nose to get your attention. All of us who have volunteered for projects at Glen Gray Road will miss the big black Lab with the friendly bark and affectionate manner.
