Carrier appreciates outpouring of support

My uncle Ed Patriquin recently “retired” from his PQB News paper route. As was noted, he spent almost 10 years serving the community of San Pareil and did so with passion and pride. Never one to be idle, he started delivering the news to give him something to do and to stay fit. I suspect he spent more on dog treats than he made but the money wasn’t important. Ultimately, debilitating pain forced him to retire.

Ed asked me to thank his customers and PQB News office staff for their outpouring of kindness and generosity. Along with his canine friends, you all have a special place in his heart.
