Heading Away from Hillsborough, Temporarily

An impromptu trip has Eileen asking for story leads early.

I’m taking a break from Hillsborough for part of this week.

Don’t worry, it’s not that I’m sick of the town or neglecting you, Patchfans. My uncle, Ken Baker, died last Thursday of complications of frontotemporal dementia, a disease that’s like Alzheimer’s. As a result, I’ll be away from Hillsborough for a few days while attending the wake and funeral.

Of course, life at Patch will continue even though I’m not in town! We’ll have coverage from events in and around town for the days that I’m away from town.

Here’s what you need to know while Eileen is away from Hillsborough:

Thank you both for your condolences. I relayed them to my aunt, who's also grateful for the NJ support.
