Letter to the Editor

In memory of a friend

To the Editor:

I was very sorry to hear of the passing of Jim Dressler.

When I first came to Brazil, he was very friendly and extremely helpful.

He gave me a tour of the YMCA and filled me in on things an editor should know about a community.

I found that he was a dedicated Christian man, serving as an elder in his church. He loved the community band.

Like you and many of your readers, I know our friendship enriched my life.

Frank Phillips,
