Request to post John Shelley poem, The Whittlers
John Shelley passed away when my husband was only three years old. Since that time I have heard of so many heartfelt stories of John Shelley and what he did for this community.
I never had the pleasure of meeting John, but have been told that John Marshall Shelley III (my husband) is a lot like him with his ability to talk to anyone at anytime for any length - lol.
I've often told my husband that he should get into politics since he can "yarn" with the best of them.
I am submitting the request for the original Whittler's poem to be on CM by John Shelley.
We were fortunate to come across one of the copies several years ago and it hangs on our hallway wall. It's nice to have such a great memoir to share with our son Marshall (John Marshall Shelley IV) who is named after John.
I know that John would have loved his great grandson and be so proud of him.
Thanks. We'll intensify the search for the original poem and for a photo of the original print with the pre-1976 red brick exterior photograph, with which the poem was printed. J.M. Shelley, John Shelley's son, said that he thinks there were originally a limited number of the prints produced and donated to the Adair Memorial Hospital Foundation as a fundraiser to get a piece of medical equipment. The project was a gift of the late James and Emma Woody.
