A greatly admired figure in the Bible is the "Good Samaritan."
The Springfield community has lost a good samaritan with the retirement of Kevin Noonan from the Open Pantry.
Kevin was more than just a good samaritan. He was a relentless spokesman for the needs of the poor among us, especially the homeless.
I'm sure that Kevin will soon take up this service for some others in another community.
Thank you and Godspeed, Kevin.
