To the Editor:
We were appalled to see such a harsh attitude concerning Elizabeth Catlin, and how the police reported she is "exploiting" our community. We are members of a Mennonite church. We have been blessed with our first child and Elizabeth has enriched our birthing experience by being our birth attendant. She has a heart of gold and puts her many friends before her own self, willingly making herself available whenever the need arises, and is there to see us through any concerns we might have.
It is hard for us to simply ignore such an accusation toward our dear friend. She is needed in our community both physically and emotionally!
