I write this with tears in my eyes.  I knew this day would come.  I just didn't know it would be this hard. I've been with 94.9 WHOM for over 30 years now.  I almost didn't even consider it a job or career at times.  It's been my life.

Friday, March 13, 2015 will be my last day on the air on 94.9 WHOM.  I have traveled not only over the airwaves but across Maine and New Hampshire and met some crazy beautiful New Englanders.  We've shared stories, recipes, book recommendations, craft tips and so much more...just like friends do. WHOM listeners are some of the nicest people around.  You've showered me with flowers, homemade cookies & jams, original art, heartfelt letters and even a big beautiful afghan blanket.  There was also the occasional clock and teddy bear too. When my friend Cathy reminded me that I wouldn't have to work the Fryeburg Fair this year but that I could go as a regular fair goer, I almost cried.  So, even though I won't be riding the HOM van to events any more, wearing a crazy hat to deliver lunch or broadcast from the farmers' market or driving to the top of Mt. Washington to celebrate another radio station birthday, I'll still have all those memories of everyone I've met along the way. And as Grammie Harris once told me, "Life is all about creating memories."

With Love,

Sandra
