Keep on buying stamps and envelopes

To the Editor:
I cannot see why the U.S. Postal Service is in bankruptcy, because I have mailed one letter to my granddaughter three times. In the deal, I had to buy new stamps and envelopes. The U.S. Postal Service said they couldn’t find the place. The house was built in 1935 and I lived there for 60 plus years. Born and raised there. The house has been through two tornadoes and a number of hurricanes. In 1954 we lost some of the pecan trees, but the Postal Service can’t find the house or mailbox.
I’ve been sending letters to this address for a number of years, when I was out of the state or off at college. I write letters to my grandchildren when they have birthdays or I forget to tell them something when they come by to see me. Now the Postal Service can’t find it.
I called my daughter tonight. I wanted to know if they were still receiving mail at the house. She is a private church school teacher. Replied, Yes.
Keep on buying stamps and envelopes to help the U.S. Postal Service.
