The May 6 article about our neighbor Carol Holden ("Woman, 88, sets the pace for four generations in Mother's Day 5K") was refreshing to say the least, especially when compared to the constant bombardment of articles about low-life celebrities like Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen.

Carol goes by our house every day on her walks, at a brisk pace, and offers a big friendly wave to everyone she sees on her route. She is an inspiration not only to those who see her walk but also to everyone who knows her and the kind of person she is. In the past, she walked with her relatives' two dogs, but she eventually wore them out. Now Ripley happily takes their place. We know this article put smiles on a lot of faces, and we hope to see more like it.
