Re: The porch lights left on Jan. 24/25 To show compassion for the Betancourt family

I awakened at 12:10 a.m. and wondered if the lights were to be left on all night? As far as I had perspective to see out, the porch lights and some yard lights were on. Wish all eyes might have seen the panorama. There was glittering new snow undisturbed by man or beast. This visual gift will be remembered. It demonstrates serendipity indeed.

Wish a photographer might have photographed my view to comfort if only somewhat all who grieve for Dora Bentancourt. Its splendor contrasted the pain of loss, I thought.

Carl Sandburg Middle School counselors soothed the shock of grief in our 12-year-old. She said she felt much better after talking. Laurels to Ms. Kane who clearly knew what to suggest. You, Ms. Kane, obviously missed no classes when you studied and mastered grief therapy. Thank you and the whole staff at Sandburg for caring so much.
