To the editor:
I just wanted to say a special thank you for printing The Cottonwood Tree and the Little Boy, and also to the Niemans for sending it to you. I remember the address given by Richard Wilfahrt very well. Our son's name was mentioned and I commended Richard for the beautiful speech at the time and asked for a copy, which he said he would send me. Somehow the years passed and I never received it. Now I finally have it and will cherish it. Thank you so much.
Also, thank you to the American Legion and VFW and all involved in the Memorial Day services this year. The speakers, the music wehre beautiful. Thank God for people like you that keep alie the memory of our war heroes. Bless all of you.
