You were there for us

To the Editor:

On the evening of March 28, we received a phone call from a doctor at the Aspen, Colorado, Medical Center. He listed numerous injuries our son, Eli, had received after being struck by a snowboarder while skiing, which sent him flying into a boulder. His injuries were severe enough to airlift him to a trauma center in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Needless to say we were on our way early the next morning. From the minute we got the call, we were humbled by all the support we received from family and friends.

We thank our daughter, Elyce, for keeping everything under control at home, even though she desperately wanted to accompany us to Colorado. We returned 12 days later, with Eli, who has a long road of recovery ahead, but is doing very well.

We thank the VTA ,Transit Connection employees and MV Girls Ice Hockey, Becky and Mike Hegerty for their generosity, and everyone for their phone calls, texts, emails, Facebook messages, flowers, cards,balloons, meals, goodies and prayers.

So many times we heard, “Please let us know what we can do.” That was amazing. Thanks again to all of you for being there for us.
