Letters to the Editor

Compassion from all corners | Letters

Whenever I went to Friday Harbor or Eastsound, so many people asked about Dorothy (Shayler).

It seemed they hoped she had jumped ship, so to speak, and would be found alive. So many people this fall and winter asked, "Has she been found yet?" They cared.

I went to town on the Thursday after hearing about Dorothy being found. People I didn't even know, who knew somehow that I was from Waldron, approached me and expressed their sorrow. They didn't even know her, and cared so much.

It shows me just how much Waldron is a part of a bigger community. Thank you all.

Robin Hatten, Waldron Island
