Times Editor Marc Chase spoke via Zoom this week with Region folks who will have empty seats at the Thanksgiving table this year – and every year to come – because of the coronavirus. This is Chase’s Zoom video interview with Hobart pastor Jeff Spencer, who spoke about losing his wife, Darlene, to the virus in the spring. As Darlene Spencer was dying, Jeff Spencer also was hospitalized with COVID-19. Jeff Spencer implores people to not live in fear but to also take precautions to protect ourselves, our families and the health-care workers on the front lines of the pandemic.
