I just returned from a camping trip to find an unexpected package in my mail from Allen Bell of the Atlanta Resource Foundation, founded by the late Tom Roddy. Allen’s note was so kind and thoughtful, and so moving to me, that I am sharing it here. –Mark Pendergrast

My mentor Tom Roddy taught me to wander Atlanta’s streets. He passed on to eternity May 5, 2017. Your writing reminds me of a heart that sees the divine imprint in each person you meet. Thank you for highlighting so many caring Atlantans with City on the Verge.

Forever grateful for your gift to so many neighbors, past, present, and future.

Allen Bell
