He was my hero
To the Editor:
I was saddened to hear about the passing of Jonas Hollingstad and wanted to tell his family that he was the most important person in my life.
In 1945 when I was seven years old I fell off the float in Scow Bay. Could not swim, no life preserver and current was taking me down and out into the Narrows. Had not Jonas been walking by at that moment there is no question that I would have drowned. He got me out of the water and up on the dock where he told me years later the first thing I said was, “Don’t tell my Dad.”
I’m going to miss him, he was my hero....
