Fate has struck! Although I am not often attracted to obituary articles concerning movie stars, I found myself reading the article about Lloyd Nolan (Sept. 28). With two short paragraphs toward the end of the article I discovered I am deeply indebted to the Nolan family.
Jay Nolan is a very familiar name in our family. Our handicapped daughter has been enrolled in a Jay Nolan program for the past three years. I have been impressed by the quality of concern among the Jay Nolan personnel and the emphasis on integrating the clients into the community.
Jay Nolan, as an autistic child, may have been a well kept secret of his parents, but his community agency namesake has been a salvation to many of us parents of handicapped children. It is too bad that I did not know to thank Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd Nolan before their deaths. But, to the family that remains, please know that the legacy left by Jay Nolan is very much appreciated.
