I just read Katherine Yamada’s article in the News-Press about the house where Wellness Works is located and about my wife, Nancy Rez (“The story of a much-loved old house,” Verdugo Views, Nov. 3).

Nancy loved the work she did there, and I am glad that they continue the work with returning veterans. She and Mary Lu (Coughlin) really did some great work there, particularly with folks with serious illness that needed a place to be comforted.

I now live in the Oakland area where my son lives, but I do read the News-Press online often, and I always enjoy your interesting articles.
