In this day and age when people watch TV 80 percent to 90 percent of their free time, it’s nice to know my hometown paper that my father read his entire life helped me in a way that was so successful.
When my daughter contacted you, I had lost all faith of solving my problem in an efficient manner. Thanks to you and Craig Fox for the excellent coverage of the problem — it was easier to handle and solve. I would like to thank you for not only publishing my story but also writing it with compassion.
What you don’t know is that the residents of Watertown wished me well wherever I went once the story appeared in the paper. Their well wishes really lifted my spirits and encouraged me greatly to forge ahead with my mission as that is what it was for me. Within days, with the assistance of Judge Peter Schwerzmann and his knowledgeable clerk, Benjamin Cobb, as well as the city manager, Sharon Addison, I was in my father’s house.
I am now on my way back home to look at all the memories and know that my parents’ possessions are safe once again. Thank you to the Watertown Daily Times.
