Letter: Appreciates comments on hospital

George Rice writes:
I appreciate Carole Thomas's comment on the progress of Westlake Hospital and believe it is noteworthy. I also believe there is a thread of hope that our hospital can be saved and once again function properly as a hospital should, but it will take a lot of time, patience, cooperation and prayer. We should never take for granted the power of Prayer. There is GREAT POWER in prayer if we the people of Adair County will unite together in prayer for our hospital and those striving to save it. We appreciate those men who are working diligently to save our hospital. --George Rice
