Letters to the Editor 2/4



God bless all the people who helped during our family's time of tragedy



To the editor:

Six months ago the most horrible nightmare any parents could possibly experience became our reality when we tragically lost our 19-year-old son, Jody.

The pain and grief of losing him has almost been unbearable. Had it not been for our faith in God and the love and compassion of wonderful people, we could not have dealt with Jody's passing.

However, God has a way of putting people in our lives to encourage and strengthen us when we need them most.

We have been blessed by Pastor Jim Swecker and our wonderful church family at Rehoboth Church in Williamsport. We truly appreciate all the prayers, thoughtful deeds, and compassion shown to us.

Jody had many friends, and they were/are very supportive with their visits, phone calls, and expressions of love.

We are grateful for these young friends and pray that God will richly bless each of them.

We appreciate the compassion and diligence of Bill Divelbiss (Rose Hill Cemetery) in helping us with burial arrangements and the purchasing of a memorial for Jody's grave. He and his assistants made the Candlewalk in December a beautiful tribute to all those buried at Rose Hill.

There are many friends, neighbors and co-workers too numerous to mention who have been a source of strength and comfort to us during this extremely difficult time, and to each we want to say "thank you and may God richly bless you."

Thanks to the fire company for their gifts and service



To the editor:

I want to say a special thank-you to the Sharpsburg Volunteer Fire Company and Ladies Aides. On the Saturday before Christmas, Santa and his helpers gave me a nice fruit basket for Christmas.

I was surprised to see a Santa at my door. I'm 77 years old and that's the first time I've seen a Santa in person at my door. Of course, he was in the person of Roy Tarmon and his helper Shawn McCoy.

So thanks to the fire company and ladies aides. Keep up the good work you do in our community. We sure need your help. Two in my family have had fires in their homes and I sure know what disaster a fire can cause.
