Letter: Post Office keeps families connected
My father is 100 and a resident of the Maplewood nursing home in Webster. While the care is superb, there is nothing like family and friends. Unfortunately, our access to open visitation has been nonexistent and certainly limited of late.
The one thing that keeps my father connected is a daily — yes daily — letter that I sent to him. It is written in 36 font to make it easy to read, so the letters are not long. It also includes at least two 8-by-10 color photographs making for a nice package.
Our Post Office is responsible for getting it there and has done so, without fail, for months. Mail call for me while serving in the Marine Corps was priceless. It was our connection with home. Mail call for my father at age 100 is no different. It’s life-saving!
Our local Post Office is a great place with courteous and efficient service, always a “Hi, how are you?” So, kudos to our folks at the Ayrault Post Office for a continuous job well done! Your effort has kept my father in high spirits and that means the world to us. Semper Fi.
