Editor’s note: Thanks for caring
After the front-page publication of the widow’s letter last week in The Citizen and online in TheCitizen.com, many individuals, families, churches and organizations contacted us to offer help — anonymously in many cases — to the widowed mother. We responded that we did not know who she was and had no way to contact her — except through the paper and online. The letter nearby is her response — this time in an unsigned letter with U.S.postage attached. We thank all of you who called, wrote, emailed and came by with offers of help. — Cal Beverly, editor and publisher.
