Thanks given

To the Journal editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the people, organizations and businesses that have showed tremendous support and for their thoughts and prayers on my behalf.

A special thank you also goes to my great friends Charlie and Roxane Gardner along with my sister Leslie Johnson for arranging and planning the April 27 spaghetti dinner and silent auction benefit.

Thank you to the ladies and gents that spent so much time preparing, cooking and cleaning. Thank you to my fellow fire department members and EMS crew for all their assistance.

The love and support from my local communities, friends and family is truly overwhelming.
