A Facebook campaign to support a retired Portsmouth educator is gaining ground.
Jan Persson Williams posted the following Facebook status Monday:
PORTSMOUTH HIGH SCHOOL - Our dear friend Mr. Fitz is facing a serious health issue and will be undergoing difficult treatment. It would be wonderful if we could send cards and notes to let him know how much he means to us and to wish him well. If you could pass this along to your friends, maybe we can pay him back for some of his thousands of kind words and deeds. Send to: Col. Edward Fitzgerald, USMC Ret., 62 Belmont Dr., Portsmouth, RI 02871. Please share.
