I truly appreciate all that Chief Schlemmer has done for me

To The Daily Sun,

Dear Chief Schlemmer:

My late husband had a favorite saying when he was very astounded by events beyond his control. Now I find myself repeating his words. I was and am "Aghast and Agog" by the news of your retirement from the Center Harbor Fire Department.

Who else will smile at me as I sit on the floor unable to arise? Who else will come over to drive me home late at night from the ER at LRGH, causing the nurses to gather and and ask "Who are you? The chief himself is coming to get you! You must be someone!" Who will attempt to use an ax on my metal front door.

Let me state for the record. I truly appreciate all you have done for me. Center Harbor's Fire Department will never be the same without your willingness to help at 91 year old widow in distress.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
