Thank you for prayers

To the Journal editor:

I would like to thank all the people from Marquette County and other parts of the Upper Peninsula who took time to pray for me during a recent life-threatening infection, which began in October.

I am related by marriage to the Eliasons, Soines, and Wentelas, and they had shared my story with others in their churches and Bible Studies and with their friends and acquaintances.

God heard their prayers, and I am on the road to recovery. From my journey, I have a new perspective and appreciation for all medical personnel; and though our communities are comparatively small, we do have excellent care.

I will remain forever thankful.
