To The Editor:

Recently The Missourian printed in its “10 Years Ago” column an article about a car accident involving Mike Massmann and Patricia Mooney. In this accident, Ms. Mooney’s life was taken, a sad and horrible thing. Mr. Massmann was found guilty of driving while intoxicated.

Mr. Massmann passed away a few weeks ago. The writer failed to mention that Mr. Massmann spent the last 10 years helping others with alcohol problems.

Negative things like this need not be printed about people in such a casual manner. Close friends and family are still sad about his passing. Let some of the past stay in the past.
