TO THE EDITOR: I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, nurses aides, cleaning personnel and volunteers of the Fitzpatrick Cancer Center for the wonderful care I received and for your beautiful smiles.
Even though cancer is back, I choose to live each day with a positive attitude. I, like so many others who live with cancer, appreciate seeing smiles on the faces of family, friends and caregivers. It is uplifting and inspires hope.
Everyone has a bad day once in a while, but happiness is a choice.
There are several ways to let go of a bad day and turn it around:
2. Find the positive in every day.
3. Love passionately.
4. Help someone in need if you can.
5. Call a friend you haven’t talked to in a long time.
6. Reminisce about fond memories.
7. Look at a tree and thank the God you worship for creating such a beautiful sight for us to see.
Researchers have made great strides over the years in battling cancer. They will never give up trying to find a cure, and cancer patients will never lose hope that they do. Until the time that cancer is a distant memory, keep sending positive thoughts our way.
To the personnel of the Fitzpatrick Cancer Center and to personnel who staff cancer centers around this country, you have no idea how much your positive comments and attitudes mean to us.
You help keep us going.

TO THE EDITOR: I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to my loving family and good friends for the surprise retirement party given in my honor on June 30.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you all for the cards, flowers, gifts and good wishes I have received.
Thank you also to the many friends who stopped by, gave me cards and wished me well during my last week of work at Community Bank. I have been overwhelmed by the attention.
Words cannot express how touched I am. This has been an experience I will not forget and will remember always fondly.
