Letter of thanks: Theresa Marie Jones and children

I have lived in Kingman most of my life and I've always heard negative comments about being from Kingman. But, I've seen amazing things happen to help one another.

In 2008, I got diagnosed with Intracranial Hypertension. It is considered a rare disorder and I had to seek medical care in Phoenix at Barrows Neurological and the Mayo Clinic. Since that time, I've had eight brain surgeries and five abdominal surgeries regarding this disorder. It has taken a deep financial toll on myself and my two children.

Recently the Kingman Police Officers' Association held a raffle of a gun that was donated by Fully Loaded. Just over $2,000 was raised to help with expenses. I had the privilege of working with the men and women of the Kingman Police Department for seven years. It will always be one of my greatest honors. I thank them and Fully Loaded for their work to help me. It means everything and has lifted a great burden from my shoulders. Thank you, too, to those who bought the raffle tickets.

From the beginning I have felt blessed to have friends and family helping me through this. They deserved to be recognize: Central Christian Church of Kingman, Martin Swanty, Dr. Lowry and staff, the Diamond Brothers, Dr. Ken and Kimi Locke, Jim Hubka of Realty Executives, Linda Tackett, Dave and Candy Huerta, Sharon and Larry Butler, Sherry Townsend, Sommer Ross Palmer, the Kingman Fire Department, the city of Kingman employees, Tracie Padillia, my Jones family, the Schritter family, the Martin family, and all my friends who have prayed and brought meals, checked the mail, and cleaned.

I am truly blessed. I would never make it through this without you. You all will forever be in my heart.

With love and thanks,

Theresa Marie Jones and children
