I have always trusted my fellow citizens and neighbors to do what is right with regards to the safety, welfare, and well-being of their fellow man. Vladek and Rick were coming to enjoy your beautiful place on this wonderful Earth.
Responsibility is a concept that appears to be in the decline. If I was responsible or contributed to someone's death or the shortening of their life on this wonderful Earth, I would not be able to live one day until I was given the opportunity for attonement or the ability to answer for my failings. Apparently, this concept is not understood so much more anymore in our society. Are we so primitive that we cannot have compassion for our fellow man?
I will see you all on Memorial Day, when Larissa and I will remember Valdek and Rick and all others that are remembered and honored on this Memorial Day.
Forever attached to your community,
Larissa and I would love to meet with Ms Hulsey sometime during the 15th Memorial Day Weekend services by the Trinidad Civic Club. We can be contacted in many different ways:
1845 N. Highway A1A #302
Indialantic, FL 32903
Or contact the author of the North Coast Journal articles;
I wish our HIPAA rights could merge with Ms. Hulsey's HIPAA rights so the government could give us permission to discuss why my son Vladek and Rick Gustafson were not given every opportunity to survive this terrible accident. After all, you have the best Coast Guard Station along the California coast. Did our loved ones perish during the night in the cold Pacific waters?
Does accountability mean anything in Humbolt County; or California? I think not!
Larissa and I will spend our second Memorial Day, flying into Arcata Airport commanded by Ms. Hulsey. Very Ironic!!
