Dear Editor;

I am going on 80, and this is my first letter to the editor.

I had the misfortune of getting sick, and my daughter took me to the Pocahontas Memorial Hospital Emergency Room. I was later admitted to the hospital.

I want everyone to know that I have never been treated any better – the office girls, doctors, nurses, and even the cleaning staff were just so friendly.

I feel we are blessed to have them in our beautiful county.

I also want to say how wonderful it was to read the letter in The Pocahontas Times from my father, who was in India 75 years ago.  

Victoria “Betty” Gum
