Letters to the Editor

It's comforting to know there are compassionate people in the area
   We would like to express our appreciation to all the individuals and area business who recently tried to help us find our missing dog, Freckles.
   Several businesses graciously allowed us to post flyers in their establishments.
   Because of this we received numerous phone calls about strays fitting our dog's description.
   The flyers in the local businesses generated more responses than did the newspaper ads and the notice in area shelters.
   We are deeply grateful for every phone call we received.
   Sadly, our dog has been found dead, the apparent victim, of deliberate poisoning (as were two of our goats).
   As difficult as this has been on our family, we are comforted to know that there are so many truly compassionate persons throughout our area.
   I especially want to thank the folks at R+R Espresso for the coffee and a shoulder to cry on! You are all so sweet. Thank You!
   The Phillips family, Woodinville
