Dear Gazette Subscribers:
Does anyone who lives in this area and reads the Journal Gazette and Times Courier lived in Oak Park or River Forest, Illinois, before coming to Mattoon?
I’m 77 years old and the best years of my life were in beautiful Oak Park and River Forest.
I don’t know how I ever got down here in Mattoon? I worked 36 1/2 years in and around the northwest suburbs. My roots are in Oak Park and River Forest.
“Look homeward angel and tell me what you see is the good book still where it use to be” a song from the '60s.
Rex M. Bill, 1212 1/2 Richmond Ave., Mattoon, IL 61938
Write and let me know.
