Thanks for such a touching column

To the editor:

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Ken Smith’s Viewpoint column a few weeks ago. So many times our comments to the paper are critical or negative — how refreshing to read such a touching story. Dick Moulton is obviously a gem of a person, kind, understanding and generous too. A great guy to meet under any circumstance.

It got me thinking about my own mother and her great love of flowers, which I indulged whenever I had the opportunity ... but never enough! How I miss her, and talk to her often ... It was a lovely column that raised my spirits so much. Thank you, Ken! I have found Mother’s Day kind of depressing since Mom passed, but I’m looking at it with new eyes now.
