To the Editor: As the corona crisis grows and we are asked to shelter in place at home, our daily lives have changed. One constant for my wife and I continues to be Jonathan, our mailman.

Despite all the challenges of dealing with the coronavirus, Jonathan comes through, delivering our mail. Receiving and reading the mail has become one of our daily highlights, one which we no longer take for granted. Keeping busy paying bills, making some charitable contributions to food banks and other worthy causes along with reading our magazines and weekly newspapers delivered to our door helps us pass the time of day.

Being retired, we have come to appreciate and enjoy getting the mail six days a week. A day without Jonathan delivering our mail is a day without sunshine! We can fully appreciate the connection between senior citizens and the local mailman. Hats off to Jonathan and all the other brave mail- carriers who continue making their appointed rounds

During these challenging times, we also give thanks to our police, volunteer ambulance, fire, sanitation, nurses, doctors, deli, supermarket, take-out delivery, fast food, UPS, Fed-Ex, truckers, gas station, pharmacy, public transportation, utility, power, water, and bank-tellers, along with those producing critical medical supplies who continue working day and night.

Don't forget the radio, television and newspaper reporters who continue to keep us informed.

There is daylight at the end of the tunnel.


We depend on the support of readers like you to help keep our publication strong and independent. Join us.
