Re “Former Anniston Mayor Gene Stedham dies at 86” (News article, Jan. 22):

Ken Rollins and I will never forget the contributions and efforts made by former Anniston Mayor Gene Stedham to complete Centennial Memorial Park. Mayor Stedham and the Anniston City Council donated $32,000 in 1998 to help complete the park’s second phase. The city had previously invested over $200,000 in the infrastructure.

Thank you, Mayor Stedham, for your concern for our veterans. You may be gone from this world, but your memory lives on at Centennial Memorial Park.
