Light display full of holiday spirit

To the Editor:

I wanted to say a special “thank you” to Dr. Donald Miller, D.D.S., of Genoa. After coming back into town from a particularly nasty trip to Chicago, his office on the north side of Main Street (Route 72) at Route 23 south was just the “welcome home” we needed. I was full of “bah-humbug,” which quickly slipped away as I saw the beautiful light display that illuminates his property.

Rather than describe it, I ask that you pass by his office any evening and you will find that the trip was worth your efforts. 

Dr. Miller has been our family dentist for 17-plus years and it’s a nice surprise to realize that someone you thought you knew can welcome so many to our town in such a creative way. 

Once again, thank you Dr. Miller for making the troubles of the world disappear, if even for just a little while.
