We have so enjoyed Julia O'Malley's columns in the Juneau Empire, both before she left Juneau and after she went to Portland. She has a wonderful way of writing of her experiences with humor, angst and hope, and we could not believe that she would not be immediately hired in any media market for her extraordinary talents. We have truly missed reading her columns. Her reappearance in today's "This Week" section is so welcome. Julia: If writing about it has helped you deal with your grief over the tragic loss of your brother, keep on writing. Your talents have been sorely missed.
