Almost worth the loss

To the Journal editor:

This is a comment on the beautiful letter written by Brad Stried in the Dec. 26 issue of The Mining Journal. We also lost a beloved pet – a her, not a him in this case – just before Christmas, and we were both teary-eyed upon reading it.

We, and others who have had dogs, certainly can relate to his letter; we’re so happy you published it. To Brad, we can feel your loss, especially at this time of what’s supposed to be a ‘Joyful Season’. To paraphrase what he seemingly was trying to say: The ‘Love was worth the Loss’. Thanks, Brad.
