Support of friends

To the Editor:

In this world of daily shootings, family sadness due to job loss, medical scares or any of a number of disturbing things, I wanted to say how great it was to see a heartwarming article on the front page of your newspaper titled, "Food and Friendship," about Crystal Lake Community High School graduates of 1951.

Reading how the support they have for each other keeps them going brought a smile to my face. I, too, have friends in my life that have been a part of so many things that have happened to me along life's way and don't know what I would do without them.

Janice has been my friend for 58 years, Diana for 53, Harriet and Ursula for 52 and Lorraine for 46. I believe we all need others to keep the wheel of our lives turning, and just wanted to thank you for giving me an article to make me feel good about the precious things in my life.
