Thanks for all of the support
My family and I would like to thank all the people and businesses that came together to help make the taco feed, dessert auction, raffle and silent auction such a success that was held on my behalf on November 18, 2006.

I am overwhelmed and words can't describe how humbled and grateful my family and me feel about how people and businesses of Juneau and other communities came together to help us through this very difficult time. Everyone was extremely generous.

I am back in Juneau and recovering slowly but surely.

I would also like to thank the ambulance crew, Bartlett Hospital nurses and staff, surgeons, Doctor Amy, anesthesiologists, Father Tony, Father Scott and Northwest Airlift Personnel for saving my life. Thank you so much for all of your thoughts, prayers and generous support. God bless you all.
