Michele Miller requested her mailbox be moved closer to her home after her husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
“This is a busy highway,” Michele Miller explained to News 2’s Rebecca Collett.
Michele and her husband live off Highway 70 in Orangeburg County. For many years, their mailbox was across the highway from their home.
“I was afraid, with him wanting to check the mail, he would get hit by a car,’ she said, explaining why she filed a hardship request with the Postal Service.
“I came up with a suggestion, but they didn’t want to hear it,” she told News 2.
