On the cover of this issue we pay our respects to the late Roy Helen Ackers. This beautiful picture is one she shared with me over seven years ago as I toured her home and closets in preparation for our debut edition of Abilene Living Magazine. For our first issue, she wrote a mini autobiography about her life growing up near Anson and the wonderful years she spent working, volunteering, and living in Abilene. Her kindness, sense of humor, humble spirit, and flair for fashion will be missed by all.
