Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, Re: Monday’s Apology I accept your apology in Monday’s paper. However I do not accept the reasoning for your so-called “inspiration” in printing the photo in the first place. The deceased family need at this time is for comfort, support and counseling not only over the next few days but the weeks and every year ahead.
