To the Editor:

On the evening of Oct. 14, I took my wife's absentee ballot to the nursing home to enable her to achieve her long-desired wish to vote for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The next day, she became progressively sicker, ending up in the intensive care unit early on Oct 16.

That morning, I came home for a short time and found that our "UA for Clinton" signs had been stolen while I was at the hospital all night. The signs were graciously replaced.

My wife passed away early on Oct. 17.

Today, Nov. 9, I went out to remove the signs following the election and found them to have been stolen again.

Invading our property in an act of hate may have given you the satisfaction of making a bad situation worse for me, but I will not let you desecrate the memory of our last activity together -- assisting my wife in exercising her right to vote.

Please find another outlet for your hate.
