Not only did she lose her life partner, she lost his income. She pondered on how she would continue to make ends meet even when she cut back her household budget considerably.

If you’ve driven down Polk Street heading east on Hwy 84, chances are you’ve seen a man on a crane bravely battling the wind and the cold as he endeavors to make the side of the old First National Bank building look more inviting to residents and visitors alike. The mural is a beautification project being funded by Mansfield in Motion (MIM).

In October 2019, MIM formed a Murals Subcommittee in search of an artist to paint on the side of vacant buildings in Mansfield, with themes such as family, community, and patriotism to be considered. Finalists submitted their renderings to be considered, with former Louisiana resident Matthew Yerby being awarded the job. Yerby attended Northwestern State University in Natchitoches and now calls North Hollywood, CA home.
