To whom it may concern: I was recently a patient at the Whittier Pavilion Hospital on Summer Street here in Haverhill and I cannot begin to expound the virtues of the hospital and the amount of excellent care that I received. Not only that but a superb staff who work there, who went above and beyond the call of their duties. I now find myself after being in and out of hospitals and I mean many over the course of 32 years, have hope for my future and can start to chart a new path to a better life. This is an exemplary hospital that stands apart from the rest with its very caring staff who work there. It is a plus to the people of Haverhill and the city as a whole.

Apple pie has made a whole new set of friends for Justin Frasca.

Every Sunday, the 10-year-old Haverhill boy helps deliver pie to about 25 residents of the Hannah Duston Healthcare Center on Monument Street.

"It's something I just really like to do," he said.

Justin, a fourth-grader at Pentucket Lake Elementary School, started delivering pies in February when his grandfather Joe was a patient at the nursing home.

When Justin was visiting him one Sunday, he noticed that one resident's daughter was baking apple pies for the residents.

He asked if he could help deliver the pies and he enjoyed the experience so much that he's done it every week that he's been available to do so.
