Thanks to mentor at U.S. prison
To the editor:
In response to "Snow-covered awning falls, kills veteran in Anna, Ill.": I was saddened to hear about the tragic accident. I was a 21-year-old rookie who had just transferred to the federal prison at Marion, Ill., and had the pleasure of working with Bo Hardin in the control unit, the country's most dangerous unit. Bo mentored me. His experience and guidance have kept me alive 23 years later. I never thanked him, and I wish to do so now.
J.D. Lamer was our boss, and he too provided tutelage and guidance. I had the pleasure to work again for Lamer at the federal penitentiary here at Lewisburg, Pa.
My prayers are to Bo and his family, and a speedy recovery to Lamer.
JON-MICHAEL MORALEZ, Lewisburg, Pa.
