Many thanks to Dave Silverbrand for his article on Nancy Huntzinger and her murdered son Curtis (“Nancy’s Day,” Jan. 9).
As a father, community member and human being, I read his account of a mother who for 18 years refused to give up searching for answers about her son’s disappearance and was moved to tears. However, it was not just the circumstances of the case, but also Silverbrand’s open-hearted involvement that so impressed me. As he insinuates, where it might have been more common, convenient or professionally appropriate to move on, he chose to reach out and help as he could. In other words, to care, one human to another.
Thank you, Dave Silverbrand, for staying human.
