Inappropriate photo

It was with utter shock that I read about the accident that caused the death of Sean Jechura. But the worst shock of all was the picture your paper ran announcing it, when he was a teenager. He was 23 years old when he was killed. That earlier picture of him is an insult to his memory, and I’ve got to tell you, as a friend of his mother’s, I was really offended by that photo. The parishioners that make up St. Patrick’s Catholic Church are hurting enough with this sudden and very tragic loss without your paper adding to their pain.
