Walk in his shoes

After reading the letters regarding the murder-suicide of Richard Liposchok and his son, Mickey, I was saddened and angered by the comments made by two of the writers (“A Life Cut Short” and “Illogical, Not Loving,” Dec. 26).

Anyone who has a family member who is physically and mentally challenged can sympathize with the actions of a loving and distraught father: “Who will take care of him when I am gone?” If they go together, no more worries.

That generation did not look outside of their homes for help. The Liposchoks took care of their son from day one. They could have put him in a facility years ago but chose to love this child who never grew up.

To those who judge: Walk a mile in Richard Liposchok’s shoes.
