Community Rallies Around Laingsburg Widow After Neighbor Leaves Nasty Note

Anonymous Person Leaves Hateful Note In Neighbor's Mailbox Criticizing Lawn Care; Loving Laingsburg Responds

Someone is overly concerned about Janice Smith's lawn; enough to drop a note in her mailbox, she said.  It was an anonymous note, naturally.  And it wasn't even close to courteous.

She shared the note on the Laingsburg Community Page Facebook group on Thursday afternoon.

"Now that you have your lawn cleaned up half way descent [sic] compared to last year why don't you have lawn care come and kill and weed wack those 8ft weeds around all your trees and in your ditches, it's disgraceful you could get Twin Oaks for probably a mere $50.00."

This tactless act by the unknown party, called "coward" by some, "unkind" by others, "disrespectful," "awful" and a myriad of other adjectives by more than 100 other neighbors and community members, prompted an onslaught of support.

Janice Smith shared that she is a widow and that keeping up with some of the outdoor responsibilities that her husband, Paul, usually handled, is challenging.

"I’m sorry that I can’t keep my yard in the shape you think it should be," she said.  "As a widow there are many things that my husband did that I just can’t keep up with. If you’d like to help, instead of complaining, I’d appreciate it."

Soon it will be lots of people in the yard.  Many of the 100+ responses from supportive, loving Laingsburg neighbors and community members came with offers to help with the lawn and weeds.

Paul Smith, a 1966 Perry graduate, passed away in 2016.
