Letter: Grateful to those doing their jobs during the pandemic


All around me there are efforts to thank those around us doing unselfish things to help us continue to live our lives during this crisis. This letter is one more attempt at gratitude.

I wish to recognize the people who do their jobs each day to provide me with some sense of normalcy.

Those people include: truckers, refuse workers, news delivery staff, veterinarian employees, grocery store workers, medical staffs, mechanics, repair people, pet store workers, drug store workers, post office delivery personnel, bank staff, support for my auto gas, delivery drivers, the food bank and senior resources.

I am so grateful that you selflessly do your jobs so that I might keep me and my family safe, fed and comfortable.

Sharron Forrest Gray
