RE: Your SENTRI Program Membership #1000191 53 DearTTuann

Thank you for your participation in the SENTRI program. This is to inform you we have received a request to close your SENTRI program membership because of the following reason:

As a consequence of this request, your membership privileges and access to any expedited passage lanes has been terminated. If you have not already done so, please return your SENTRI card to the nearest Enrollment Center.

Please disregard if you were not issued a card.

Sincerely,
Supervisor, SENTRI Enrollment Center U.S. Customs and Border Protection

That is so classic Bernie... funny if it weren't so sad.

I can't imagine anyone thinking the government should run our medical system if they send out letters to the dead inviting them to reapply if they change their mind (about being dead???).

Please send it to the TV stations!

Some things never die.
Bernie....They treat your beloved wife as the IRS treats a debt. Shame on them for their heartless behaviour.

Bernie,

Thanks so much for sharing your insights and humor. I really enjoyed your post and the thread that followed it.

I am sure if there is anyway in the hevens Don Jimmy and LuAnn could meet over this one, they would for sure be having a chuckle over the irony; Of course, that is how it works on planet earth, and for sure in the regard to their/our beloved Baja, over the course of a life time of hassles dealing with the damable boarder issues.

Ah well, life goes on................

Bernie: Hope you don't mind if I pass this on to a good friend who is a retired ICE employee (Border Patrol and Investigations). He'll get a big laugh out of this.
