08/08/2006: "Thank You All"
Dear Friday Harbor,
I hope you are all aware of how fortunate you are to live in this benign, caring community.
I've just completed five weeks of radiation treatment for prostate cancer; twenty-five trips that would have entailed 12 hours of ferry riding each day for a twenty minute necessary treatment, if not for our local Soroptimists and the San Juan Eagles who made it a two hour daily flight to Bellingham and back home.
Thank you Vicky T., John V., George M.( I still owe you $2 bucks),Dennis W., Carlo F., Bill C.(and Tim J. for the use of the plane),Greg G., Mike F.,J ohn G. and Island Air. I am most grateful to you all for your dedicated service and sacrifice of your time to help cancer fighters cope and heal.
