It was more than a disappointment to read your news report of Galen Avery’s death; it was a disgrace. Many of us from the Santa Barbara Class of ’83 felt the same.
I knew Avery only by name; however, I am quite certain that he was a son to the Averys. Maybe a brother to one or more. Possibly even a father. And I am very sure that he was a friend to many.
In no way did he deserve your disgraceful headline and article.
