Letters to the Editor

Thanks go to all those who helped after teen's suicide | Letter to the Editor

My sincerest thanks go to the counselors and staff at Vashon Youth & Family Services, Vashon Island School District and Vashon’s independent counselors.

As the parent of a high school student and an Island physician, I commend you for all of the work you have done over the past week for our community. Words cannot express how grateful we are to have your talents and resources in this time of need.

Thank you for your time and your compassion. And thank you for your willingness to educate our youth and parents. Our world would be a much darker place without your presence.
