To the editor:
I would like to take this opportunity to address all of my many friends and customers on Pine Island.
As some of you have heard, I have been diagnosed with lung cancer and have started chemotherapy and radiation here in Florida. Soon, I will transfer to my home in Illinois, so I can be near my children, grandchildren and other friends and relatives.
I am going to fight this aggressively and with my positive outlook, and your prayers, we will beat this together.
Business will continue, as usual, at Carl's Service. Chuck will be in charge and I will be in contact with him on a daily basis.
I hope to have this under control and be back on Pine Island, God willing, by the end of the year. I will resume treatment here at that time.
Thank you for your patronage, prayers and support.
