Letters to the Editor

Lincoln Daily News welcomes letters of appreciation, information and opinion on matters pertaining to the community. 
Controversial issues:
As a community we need to be able to talk openly about matters that affect the quality of our lives. The most effective and least offensive manner to get your point across is to stick to the issue and refrain from commenting on another person's opinion. Letters that deviate from focusing on the issue may be rejected or edited and marked as such.

I want to comment on 'Ryman an inspiration in character'

Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

Yes, John Fleshman, you're right on the money about Mr. Ryman. He was a decent, warm and sweet gentleman. We used to amuse ourselves at his expense, as we did just about every other adult we came in contact with; but no one could question his sincerity or integrity.

A couple of years ago, Harold Boyer and I happened to visit briefly with him in his nursing home. I was amazed he actually remembered my name after 40 years and that he was, as always, unfailingly cheerful.

Rest in peace, old friend.
