I am shocked to view last Sunday’s Steve Meyers cartoon, showing a hunched-over person pushing a walker (Sept. 10, Page D2).

Yesterday 50 friends, neighbors and family members honored my wife’s passing. Her life encompassed 75 years as a nurse. A few of our friends slowly walked into the Community Center also pushing a walker, as did my wife for the last few years.

Just what the heck did cartoonist Meyers have in mind? Is he implying we seniors are immigrating into Maine in excess? Most of my peers grow old in Maine and stay here by choice, contributing, as best we can, until the end. We deserve an explanation and apology.
