Opening The Lines Of Communication

June 29, 1997

Fine articles like that of Miles Corwin on the Loved Ones of Homicide Victims group ("For the Longest Time I Just Wanted to Die," May 18) can help open the lines of communication and humanity among all of the L.A. area's communities so we can reach over the boundaries that have separated us for much too long. I'm sure I was not the only person deeply touched by this heart-wrenching story.

Can you tell us where we can send donations to the Loved Ones or to Virginia Davis so that she can buy a headstone for her son?

The address for Loved Ones is P.O. Box 37246, Los Angeles 90037; the group's telephone number is (213) 777-7788.

I read Corwin's article in its entirety and couldn't stop sobbing throughout.

My daughter's boyfriend was killed in an automobile accident in October. That death was an accident, not murder, and it wasn't even my son or daughter--and still I cry every day. I cannot even imagine the sense of loss the boy's parents are experiencing or the grief that my daughter is suffering.
