Touching story

Your story about Gaines Carl Brogdon on April 4 was interesting and touching. As a frequent traveler on Bullard Avenue, I have for years wondered about the "pigeon feeder."

Mr. Brogdon's personal history and how his affinity for pigeons evolved from his World War II experiences, and how he reluctantly cared for "Pete-O," the pigeon that became his pet, give grace and dignity to one of the ways in which each of us can make a quiet difference in a world full of indifference.
