In response to “Family focused” in the March 4 to 10 issue.
I am a man in my seventh decade of life. As with many older folk, I have seen some of the good, some of the bad and maybe even a little bit of the ugly. In reading the newspaper and watching television, we are exposed to stories that could easily lead us to believe that there is no one left who has any respect for mankind.
And then we are blessed and extremely fortunate to read an article about Mr. Kurt Wessler. My faith in humanity has once again been renewed due to this young man. His 6-foot-three frame doesn’t make him a man. His decision to give up something he loved for his family is what makes Mr. Wessler a man.
Gianna and Patrick are two very fortunate children to have the father they do. Mrs. Wessler has every right to be proud of husband for the route he has taken.
I can hear his mom, as she looks over to her husband and proudly says, “That’s our boy, Dwight. It looks like we did OK by him.” Yes, they did. Yes, they did.
As a retired military man, I salute you, Kurt. Certainly God is smiling on you today as are your mom and dad.
