To the editor:
Loss of hearing is a big problem, but it is exacerbated when friends and family do not know how to deal with it.
I was one who didn’t understand how important these tips are until I read this poem, written by Roy Bain in 1996, and related it to my own severe loss of hearing.
Hopefully, sharing this with the community will encourage others to share it, too.
When at first our hearing begins to fade, though the signs are foretelling, we may choose to evade.
