Westrich's work touched lives
To the editor:
In response to the article "Westrich remembered as 'street-smart officer'": Thank you so much for the beautiful article you wrote about my sister-in-law, Rhonda Westrich.
I know I can speak for all of Rhonda's family and friends when I say how wonderful it is to read the words you have written for sharing with the community and the entire Cape Girardeau area.
We are all very thankful to know how much Rhonda was appreciated for the work she did and for the difference she made in people's lives.
You too have touched our lives and have made a difference by writing these words of respect and honor for our sister. You have helped to prove that indeed, there are many angels among us.
