This is in reply to the Oct. 7 letter from Dorothy Gray, Russian Orthodox Church Council secretary, which was a response to my Oct. 1, letter regarding the deplorable condition of the Russian cemetery.
I want to thank you for your invitation to clean up the cemetery on Memorial Day 2004. Unfortunately, due to two debilitating diseases, one of which is in my back and neck, I will be unable to accept.
I do, however, hope that other community members who have loved ones buried in the cemetery will happily accept your invitation. I attempt to do my part by bringing flowers.
K.F. Wilson, Nikiski
