  1. Thank you for posting the COVID numbers for our area.
    The numbers hit home for me when my friend Tom Cody passed away earlier this week due to complications from the COVID virus.
    I knew Tom for 60+ years. He was always a gentleman, a warm and kind person to all.
    He was born and raised in Hudson.
    A true human being that loved everyone.
