Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,
Thank you for your time in this matter. I am writing for my husband James. He is a Vietnam Veteran and loves his country and it’s people. James has been ill for sometime now. He has a damaged liver and failing kidneys. Last November 27, he was in the hospital and was told that he had 3-6 months to live.

James is still here with us. He has lost a lot of weight and his muscles. He is in Hospice Care and has a hospital bed, wheel chair and is on oxygen. None of us know how long we will live for sure but with that news in Nov. James has times when he gets so depressed and just cries. I am asking that some of your readers send him a card or letter of encouragement. I wrote to a couple other newspapers and he has gotten some cards and letters and this has cheered him up. As I said, he has been ill for awhile and he seems to have worsened after we lost a daughter to cancer early last year.

I want to thank all who help me with this. Kathleen Bretz
