Doc Arnett’s article in Wednesday's paper was something I must respond to. Newspapers usually get readers’ attention with big headlines and explosive stories. Occasionally there is a quiet corner of the paper that deserves the same big headlines.

Seldom do I read such warm heart-tugging material as I found on page 3A under the byline of Kansas Character by Doc Arnett. I found myself reliving my own life and letting each word soothe through the pores of my body.

Usually Doc writes beautifully and I enjoy what he says, but this was a jewel to keep. I will reread it many times before it finds a home in a recycle tub.

Thank you for letting this man grace your Opinion page.
