I would like to thank all of my family and friends for all of the prayers and support which you all have provided throughout my recent illness, starting at the beginning of this journey. Cherokee Emergency Room, Cherokee EMS, Med West Sylva nursing staff, Memorial Mission staff because with their care and God’s will, I am still here and almost completely recovered, minus some physical therapy that I still must finish. Everyone who participated in the benefit, thank you very much! A very special thank you to my extended family and my co-workers. Even though I may not have known some of you were there when I was in ICU, I still appreciate each of you very much. Last, but not least, the biggest thanks of all goes to my sister and to Nellie for all of the long hours and traveling they did for me, and all the sacrifices they made to be with me everyday of this journey. Thank you to Barry, Collette and Cory as well.
