At the request of the Sabatke family, I have posted a Letter-To-The-Editor that appeared in the July 19-20, 2014 issue of The Newport Plain Talk.
My initial reaction, after re-reading the letter from a few weeks ago, was to remove the parts that made mention of me. Instead, I have chosen to leave these words and will say, further, that I am humbled by the mention. In fact, I am honored and humbled by all of the different communications I have received from all family members during the past two years. The kind words and exchanges that we have had serve as encouragement as this project moves forward.
Thank-You from the bottom of my heart. May God Bless all of you.
