I want to express my deepest gratitude for the many kindnesses, help and support that I received during Woody’s illness and since his passing. Your encouragement and assistance is greatly appreciated. Had it not been for the many of you in Cornwall and the surrounding towns, I would not have been able to keep Woody at home during those difficult days. For this I will be forever grateful. Thank you again.
