For the record ...

I am writing this e-mail to you regarding the feature story by Joan Slattery Wall titled, “Do You Know This Man?” [SBN, February 1999]. I am the former Mrs. R. Gabe Reitter II and I must comment on the paragraph which states Mr. Reitter was divorced and left to raise four children. The only correct part of this statement was the fact that he was divorced; he was not, however, left to raise our four children.

This comment from him, erasing my motherhood, needs to be addressed as publicly as his comment. I worked too hard over the years to be so erased.

Mrs. Carol L. Whisman
Buckley, Wash.
