Letter: Borough family appreciates prayers, support


To the editor,

We wish to begin by again expressing our appreciation for all of the prayers that have been said by the faith community for the past 11 years for former Republican-American Managing Editor Bob Veillette and our family.

Thank you to St. Francis of Assisi Church in Naugatuck for hosting the pasta dinner held in May, and for making it such a huge success. We also wish to thank those who helped organize this wonderful event, as well as the food preparers and servers and those who worked so hard on the preparation and gifts involved in the raffles.

Bob and the Veillette family very much appreciate those who helped and those who attended. The continued support of our community is heartwarming. May God bless you all.

We thank God every day for our children and grandchildren, Bob’s aides, family, friends, neighbors and countless well-wishers.

Never miss an opportunity to say “I love you” to those who deserve it. Life is unpredictable. “Take nothing for granted.”

Bob had a passion for Shakespeare: “I can no other answer make, but thanks and thanks.” “Oh Lord that lends me life, lend me a heart that is replete with thankfulness.”

Bonnie Veillette
