To the editor:
I have always known Wellington as a great place to have lived my life and raised my family, but I could never have imagined the overwhelming display of concern and support shown to me in light of present events.
I would like to express my extreme gratitude for the generosity of this and the surrounding communities. It has been said that you can judge your life by the friends that you have. I must be the luckiest man in the world.
Thanks to all my friends.
