To the editor:
Sadly I should not have been shocked by the articles about Obie and William Chambers.
On Aug. 1, 2000 our daughter and Andrea’s sister, Jessica Marie Simpson passed away. Jessica had Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare and aggressive bone cancer.
Becky Barnes heard that Make a Wish had given Jessica a Ford Mustang. Someone from the Democrat office called me wanting to do an article about Make a Wish. I informed them that Jessica’s dad, Ed, bought the car. She said that if she could think of anything else to write about she would call.
