To the Editor:
Apparently, next-door neighbor Wendy Kilpatrick and I have enjoyed the same experience with retiring Tom (Santa) Bailey of the Belle View post Office. [“‘Twas the Night before Retirement,” The Gazette, Nov. 6.]
So competent, sharp-witted, just plain enjoyable was Mr. Bailey over the years, I routinely gave up my place in line just to reorder myself therein to do postal business with him.
This patron will miss Tom (Santa) Bailey and our shared views, laughs and his incomparable service greatly. Like leaving Santa, I always left him feeling better.
