Excellent journalism truly appreciated

Sorting through my stack of papers saved from this past month, my heart sank and rose rereading each headline,remembering the grimness of each day in regard to the Oso mudslide. So many in the area have been affected by this tragedy; your photojournalism and stories have been a blessing in helping us sort out this confusing time.

In combination with extreme gratitude to all the emergency and rescue personnel whom I look upon as heroes, and everyone who has pitched in with time, contributions and prayers, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your wonderful reporting has been thorough, considerate and truly appreciated.

Well done!
