We would be remiss if we did not take the time to thank Nurse Amp Ingram and Pastor John Garrott and his wife Jennifer. They were by our sides throughout the entire time of this long ordeal. For their love and support we are forever grateful. Even though the words Thank You are small by nature, they hold a lot of importance. Again we could not have been through this battle without them.
Frank and Linda Burton have been a tremendous blessing to this family and we will forever be thankful to them for their love and support also.
God is an awesome God and for that we are all thankful.
