We are losing our wonderful postal carrier, George Yuen, who has been with us since we moved in. We are extremely sad to see him go.

The town of Atherton, over the last ten years, has come to rely on Mr. Yuen for his timely, friendly, and very accurate service to our area. Many of our residents rely on his service for their business and personal communication. We have all become friends with Mr. Yuen and rely on him.

I mailed at letter stating such to Mr. Gaskill, who never bothered to return a note or call in response to my letter. I am afraid whoever replaces Mr. Yuen will have the same service attitude which Mr. Gaskill displays. I will have to start re-acquiring my mail and packages all over town (which was what happened last time Mr. Yuen was removed from our route).
