A very special letter of gratitude

Published 3:41 pm Friday, April 27, 2012

My sons and I would like to express our sincere appreciation to all of our friends and neighbors in the community who came to our need and rescue after our devastating house fire recently.
First of all, we would like to extend our genuine gratitude to all the firefighters, rescue personnel, law enforcement and volunteers who did an awesome job containing the fire and preventing it from spreading. This is an amazing place to live with amazing friends and neighbors. We appreciate everyone involved in organizing our successful fundraiser including local businesses for great raffle prizes and other donations and especially those who came to offer us support in so many ways and continue to do every day.
We are extremely grateful for every single act of kindness, every donation we receive and every embrace. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers for added strength as we continue on our road to recovery. We are truly blessed to live in Polk County with great friends and neighbors such as you.
Colleen, Christopher and Davie Abril
