Letter to the Editor

Family member grateful for response

Sunday, August 7, 2011

To the Editor:

I want to thank all of the emergency personnel who responded to my sister and brother-in-law's accident Friday, July 20.

Jackson Volunteer Fire Department, Center Point Volunteer Fire Department, Clay County Search and Rescue, TransCare, Air Evac, Lifeline, friends and my family at the Clay County Sheriff's Department.

I've worked many accident scenes with most of you, but it's different when I'm responding to close family. I knew and thanked God that they would be in the best care anywhere, with people who truly care.

Each of you acted both professionally and compassionately. I'm proud and honored for the privilege to serve with each of you.

I also want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers during these past couple of weeks.

They are definitely felt and very much appreciated.

Doug Barr,
