On March 1, Boo H. Mosley posted, “Everyone please share this in Belle Glade! Who would join in with me in tying a red, white and blue ribbon on their mailbox in memory of Oscar, our local mailman, and leaving it there for at least the month of March? I think this will mean a lot to his family to see ribbons on mailboxes throughout Belle Glade.”
