Editor, Daily Press:
I would like to send a letter of great gratitude to a local hospice.
My grandfather was diagnosed with lung and brain cancer and wanted to spend his last days with my grandmother of 61 years in their home. My grandmother and mother chose this particular hospice care to make him more comfortable, and to allow him to be where he loved the most, with my grandmother and his children and to watch his horse in the pasture.
Although they do not advertise, my family decided to go with them. As we all know, watching someone we love dearly slowly slip away in front of you is one of the hardest things that anyone has to go through. This hospice came in and became one of the family. They treated my grandfather as if he was their father/grandfather. They did not act as if this was a job to them, but as if they were taking care of a family member/friend.
Having to go through this difficult period was not easy, but they gave my grandfather what he asked for, to be home with his family, and not be treated as a patient.
I just wanted to make sure to give praise where praise is due. After my grandfather passed, that wasn’t it for them. They made sure that my grandmother was OK, as well as being present at the viewing and the funeral. Again, they became a friend/family.
They gave my family a sense of peace as my grandfather was passing.
Grand Rapids, Mich.

Dave Thomas needs to be sure he is uttering facts, not claims, before he prays.

There are four reasons why I am against a mandated background check to purchase a weapon. The first is how I read the Second Amendment: “...shall not be infringed..” means that Congress does not have any authority over “arms.” I do not believe a body of fallible men and women should have that kind of authority.

Folks are putting in [the Press] their pride for the police department. If all was so fine, why did we get a new chief?
Kudos to Daily Press
I just want to let you know how impressed I am with the professionalism displayed by Tahlequah Daily Press Managing Editor Kim Poindexter during a disturbing incident I witnessed Monday, April 1.
In defense of cops
One of my pet peeves is people talking about something as if it’s fact when they don’t have a clue what they’re talking about. In response to Phyllis Wilfong’s letter to the editor, let me set the record straight.
CN to be commended
I have to applaud Cherokee Nation’s investment in health care.
In appreciation of cops
Wow, maybe we should start dictating to our police force where, when, what time, what type of food, and with whom they should be eating! More often than not, co-workers are often seen lunching together. Why should law enforcement be looked upon any differently?
The unfriendly streets
I have lived in the Tahlequah area since 1994, and since 2009, within the city limits of Tahlequah. Since 2011, I have begun running in town, and since 2012, also started bicycling in town.
Coming full circle
When I was a child growing up in Tahlequah, the Indian children were looked down on. The “White” kids made fun of their names and accents.
