Widow grateful for Boilermaker support

My husband, William E. Vincent Jr. [a member of Local 83, Kansas City, Mo.], passed away Nov. 17, 2009. He was a Boilermaker for 27 years. I wish to sincerely thank all the Boilermakers who donated to the collection to help us.

It is appreciated more than you will ever know.

Letters to the Editor

Stimpson family is grateful for support

While I have never met many of you, I want to let each and every one of you know that I, along with our young son, have been overwhelmed with your warm words of comfort and your generosity during our time of loss.

I always wondered why you are called “brothers,” and now I know. All of you are Terry’s brothers and you will forever be in my heart and prayers. Again, I thank you so very much and pray each of you stays safe.
