To the Editor:
I wish to thank the editor of the Sentinel for printing the article, Kylie Saari for writing it and those who shared their thoughts and memories about my husband, Jim Smith, in the Jan. 11 issue. It deeply touched all of our family.
And much thanks goes out to so many of you wonderful people of Fairmont who attended Jim's funeral in Faribault, on that very day that the article came out. I and my children, Dean and Cheryl, really felt the love outpoured.
Jim really missed living in Fairmont, but moving to Faribault really was what we needed to do so I could care for my parents before they too passed away.
Thank you to everyone who sent cards, memorials and such beautifully written words. Fairmont is a great community and all who live there should be proud to say they do. Blessings.
Mary Anne, Dean and Cheryl Smith
