The Dalles Shock and grief
To the editor:
We as the family of Sofia Macias in The Dalles, which consists of Sofia’s grandfather, grandmother and uncle whom, upon a phone call to them from a family member in California learned of the death of Sofia after the fact.
Her grandfather, local resident Jerry Price, had to take the shock while out shopping at the local Kmart when his family had to tell him his granddaughter was dead and he had to take a heart pill and take off a week of work.
To say the least it was a great shock to her local family who can’t describe the pain and grief suffered while not being notified until after Sofias death.
