  • Letters to the Editor

    Neighbors spend snow day in service to others

    To the editor:

    What wonderful care, love, and support we have received from our neighbors on Briarhill Road during my husband’s 10-day hospital time. But the sweetest and happiest care came from six children on our street.

    They knew that my husband, Pat, would be coming home from the hospital Friday afternoon and on that cold, blustery Friday morning they rang the door bell and asked if they could shovel our driveway.
