Family grateful for response after fire tragedy

Saturday, January 18, 2003

To the editor:

I would like to express my appreciation for the response that was made when my daughter's (Denise Williams) house burned Dec. 28.

I want to thank the Southeast Missourian for its coverage and concern, and especially Janis Gosche, who came to interview and talk to my family. She was so sweet and polite and had so much patience. I can't put into words my feelings of gratitude for the concern and overwhelming response that followed after the story about the awful tragedy was published.

There is no way I can thank each one individually, but I want everyone to know how appreciative we were of each donation and gesture made in assisting us at such a terrible and emotional time. Thank you so much, and may God bless you all.
