Reader thanks King family for sharing story of smoking

Posted: Thursday, September 04, 2003

Thank you for publishing the article on the King family Aug. 24. I would like to thank Edward and Lorraine King for sharing what they are going through. I lost my husband of 32 years to lung cancer almost 12 years ago. He was only 59 and did not get to see his beautiful granddaughter graduate and get accepted to the U.S. Naval Academy. He never saw his fantastic baby grandson, and I lost the best friend I had ever had.

I sincerely hope that this story will keep even one child from starting to smoke and hopefully help many others to stop.
