Thank you Ketchikan
By Teresa P. Richardson


January 30, 2006

Thank you for the kind and thoughtful words expressed by many of your residents. It touched my heart that even though Butch was not one of "yours", you still treated him like he was. This has been a VERY hard time for my sister, my family, and Butch's family. We are all trying to get plane reservations, hotel, etc. while still trying to comfort my sister.

I live in Gulfport, MS and stayed for Hurricane Katrina. I thought that was rough. However, nothing compares to losing a family member!

I request that you please keep my sister and all of our family members in your thoughts and prayers as my sister and her children will really need it after the funeral in Huntsville, TX and the memorial in San Diego when they are alone.

God bless you all.
