To The Editor
recent Northwood Board of Selectmen article in The Sun, in which
they praised and thanked all involved with the July Bean Hole Bash
was well deserved by all who spent many hours organizing this event.
We can, firsthand, relate to the time and effort that is required
for such an event. We both were involved with Northwood’s 200th and
225th anniversary celebrations as treasurer and chairman. We had
wonderful committee members, who were willing to do all kinds of
work, and we thank each and every one of them again, as we reminisce
about those events.
doesn’t seem possible, but in ten years Northwood will be 250 years
old! It is not too soon to start planning for that celebration. Give
some serious thought about how you could participate and ask the
Selectmen to form a steering committee, and to set funds aside each
year to cover the cost of a celebration worthy of Northwood’s 250th

of my wonderful neighbors, friends, friends of friends and even
strangers that have given me support and love during one of the
worst of life’s many events I have ever had to endure.
Monday morning, August 12, my wife of 30 years, Patrice, was waiting
at a stop sign at the end of Ridge road; waiting until it was clear
for her to pull out onto Route 4 and go to work at UNH, Durham.
While waiting there, she was struck and killed by a driver heading
home, who had drifted off of Route 4 after working a night shift.
Obviously it was a completely unnecessary and tragic event.
until this time in my life, I have never had anyone very close to me
pass away. I was completely lost. Lost and stunned and simply
walking in circles not knowing what to do. It was then that I
realized what truly matters most in this world. And that is simply
each other. Not money, not material things but simply people: our
community, our families, our friends. And yes, perfect strangers.
The outpouring of support and caring and love I received in those
first few horrible days of my totally changed life were of the
greatest comfort to me and my 21 year old son Dylan. Without that
support I just don’t know what I would have done.
said this, I want to thank each and every one of you, not just in
Northwood, but all of our surrounding communities. We really are all
neighbors and need more than ever to watch out for each other.
I am a
changed man and I hope a better person now due to what I have
learned. We all live on the same planet, we share the same air and
we all feel the same joy and the same pain that life can hand out. I
feel blessed to have chosen such a wonderful and beautiful place to
live and raise a family. I now know what living in a community is
really all about: it is all about you, my neighbors, my friends and
my fellow man. We are all different but we are all the same.
closing: The world is changing fast and we are hurrying to adapt.
There are more cars on the road than ever and more distractions that
take our minds off of what we should be paying attention to. When
we, all of us, are driving, we are really sharing the road with each
other and as such we have a responsibility to one another. We must
never lose sight of this. We must teach this to our kids, we must
constantly remind ourselves of this, even if we have been driving a
lifetime. Please, drive carefully, wear your seat belts, slowdown
(there is never really any hurry anyway if you think about it) and
always stay alert.
one avoided tragedy can help to give meaning to the passing of my
wonderful, loving wife and devoted mother. Thank you.
