The Times received a letter from Judeth Van Hamm's son yesterday that we want to share with our readers.
Longtime residents know how much the town owes to Van Hamm's long efforts to preserve Hull's resources, natural and historic. It is not too much to say that we would not have the lifesaving museum, the carousel, the Weir River Woods, and many other town treasures, without her.

To the Editor:
Readers of The Hull Times might like to know about a fundraiser set up for Judeth Van Hamm in memory of her late parter, Michael Connelly. Michael passed away July 21st after sharing three decades of sunsets over Hull Bay with my mother. His unexpected departure has come with additional financial pressures for Judeth. If any readers would like to contribute to her wellbeing through this difficult time, the link is https://www.gofundme.com/picture-judeth-a-millionaire. Thoughts on peace, love, light, joy, health, and abundance also welcome!
Thank you, Blake Wiers
