I have lived in the Falls since 1968. My great-great grandfather was one of the village founders. I have served the community in multiple ways: Firefighter, various boards and commissions and for many years was president of the Falls Cable Access Corp. Currently I own, and am active in, a restaurant equipment manufacturing company.
Last week I had the pleasure writing in this blog about a good guy. To our loss John Schilling is no longer a resident of our community. Unfortunately, this week I have the unhappy duty to write about a person who is just the opposite.
The person in question has sent a scathing, critical letter to a family who recently moved away from Menomonee Falls due to declining health. The family had served our community well for over 50 years and they were respected. And yet this sick-minded individual sent such a vindictive, vengeful letter that it raised my anger to the boiling point as I read it. My wife shed tears as she was reading. She couldn't believe that anyone could behave in such an un-Christian manner and be so cruel and hurtful. I would publish it here, but it would be in bad taste to do so and would only harm the family more.
Who is this spineless person that hides behind anonymity to attack a sick, old man? I have a good idea of the identity and will post more here as details emerge. In the mean time, whomever you are, be ashamed of what you have done and prepare to atone for your sins. An apology to your fellow citizens will be in order when a the rock you're hiding under is turned over and you have to crawl out from underneath and show your face to the rest of us.
