Letter: Thanks From the Grace Family

To the Editor:

The Grace family would like to thank everyone in the Upper Valley as well as other surrounding communities for all their support these past months (“Cornish Couple Seriously Injured in Fla. Crash Return Home,” May 30). It has been one long uncertain road and we’re just so grateful this trying time has turned out so positively.

We know from all of your cards and messages that this tragedy has had a profound effect not just on us, but on all of you as well. It has opened up our eyes to just how lucky we are to have each other. It is absolutely so humbling to know how much love there is in this community. Some of you we know, and some of you we’ve never met, but you were all there for us during a very difficult time. Many of you prayed for our family in your churches, lit candles every night praying for healing and for that you will always be our friends.

We want you all to know that we read and appreciated everyone’s thoughts, prayers, and well wishes during this devastating time. There were times when we received discouraging news, and we ourselves had a hard time keeping the faith.

We couldn’t have gotten through this event without you all. It was your uplifting spirits, strength, words of encouragement, personal testimonies, faith, love and prayers that consoled us and gave us the faith to stay positive.

We’re happy to report that both mom and dad are back here in New Hampshire with us. Both are still being treated for their injuries, but they are home and are making tremendous progress every day. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and we thank you, God.

We will be hosting an appreciation coffee and doughnut get together this morning at the Cornish Town Hall, from 9 to 11:30. Please join us if you are able to. We would love to see and thank everyone in person.
