Perhaps the strongest feeling of all is that of unfathomable relief, and praise to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who has seen our daughter through several rough years of cancer therapy — and saw her through this also.
She was not alone, unconscious in that cold, dark, murky water. It was no quirk of fate that six strong men, totally unconnected, were all travelling down a suburban back road, at precisely 2 o’clock on a weekday afternoon.
How these six separate individuals fused together into an organized, efficient machine, racing the clock, defies human explanation. We acknowledge this miracle, giving honor to God, for His mercy and protection, and to the brave, capable men who were used as His instruments. May He bless them, and their families, for giving our daughter, wife, mother and sister back to us. They have our utmost gratitude.

Taylor Library fills a need
To the editor:
The Taylor Library has played an integral part in my children’s love of reading. I do not believe it is a duplication of services at all as the smaller venue was important for my children especially for my autistic son who found the “little library” much less overwhelming than the Derry Public Library. Even my typical daughter said “they have lots of picture books and it’s easier to find them because the library is smaller.”
The Taylor library was also an integral part of my sanity when trying to get to a story hour with my three year old autistic son and my two year old twins. The staff at the library literally greeted me with open arms always offering to lend me the extra lap or two that I needed to engage three small children in story hour at the same time. It was a marvelous success as they are all avid readers now.
