Kindness and comfort


To the Editor:

The family of Captain Robert E. Kinnecom would like to thank family and friends for their kindnesses during our time of bereavement, for the generous food donation, flowers, and cards. Thank you to the Veterans of Martha’s Vineyard, the Portuguese-American Club and its volunteers, United States Coast Guard Chief Robert Riemer and Seaman Samuel Hoppe of Station Menemsha, and to Chapman, Cole and Gleason for their care. Also to the nurses and doctors at Martha’s Vineyard Hospital for all their care, and to each of you sharing in our loss, thank you for your sympathy and kindness. It was comforting to all of us.
