Food for souls

A letter of thanks for the extremely touching feature article on Roger Butt the disabled man and the woman that shared her time and life with him. It is a story that so often is quietly realized in many that give time to be with the unloved and forgotten disabled or mentally challenged. It’s a story of how with contact and being available gives food to souls withered in by lack of love and friendship. It again renews my heart to know that each of us has the food to give, that can bring bloom to others in miraculous ways, by being there, simply being there.
