Burned-out victim thanks the community

It is this thoughtfulness, kindness and generosity that makes living in small communities so much more preferable than any city

Editor, The Times

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who donated not only replacement items, but also their time and effort during the holidays to see that I was able to start again after fire had destroyed my home.

It is this thoughtfulness, kindness and generosity that makes living in small communities so much more preferable than any city to live and raise children.

There are insufficient number of words to express my sincere and heart-felt thank you, and I wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year.
