This blog is published! Thanks to the letters to the editor that my mom and sister wrote to the Quad City Times, the newspaper in our hometown with a large circulation. Here is the link for the letter Elizabeth wrote:
Here is the editorial that was published because of her letter. A couple weeks ago, I received an email from one of the editors, Mark Ridolfi. He wanted to take few pieces of my blog entries and share them in the paper. Of course I was beyond flattered and surprised. Here is the link to that editorial:
It is amazing to me that people would be interested in our lives and what I have to write about, but I will take the interest. Thank you again to all of you who read this and for those that help the Carpenter family through our life, whether you are physically with us or a shoulder to lean and cry on. We are grateful to all of you!
