To the Editor,
Recently, we lived through every parent’s nightmare. Our son died in an accident on Crystal Lake.
We were blessed to live in Lakewood, a community where we were surrounded by caring neighbors and served by an outstanding law enforcement department.
From that dreaded phone call, to the ultimate outcome of the tragedy, the Lakewood Police Department treated us with professional respect and compassion.
Nothing can take away the pain of our loss; but the efforts of Chief Todd Richardson and Sgt. Jeff Winters made a huge impact. Thank you for your service and compassion.
Rick and Jan Carlstedt
