Letters of Thanks

We would like to thank everyone for their support and compassion. The memorial service for Douglas Campbell Jr. was phenomenal. The show of support for us and respect for Douglas just blew us away. He touched so many people; as his parents, we could not be any prouder of the human being he became.

To all of his friends, again, thank you for your support. Just remember he will always be with us in our thoughts and in our hearts. Don't mourn his leaving us, instead celebrate the time you had with him. He like making people happy, so think of him often and may he still bring you many happy thoughts.

Thank you all, from our hearts.

I recently had the opportunity to attend the 2008 Prep Basketball USA Junior Nationals International Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio. I was one of five chosen to represent the state of Arizona at this tournament.

In order to go to Columbus, I had to compete in an all-state regional tournament in Las Vegas that included the states of California, Nevada and Arizona. There were 150 contestants in the regional tournament and only 30 were chosen to go to Columbus to compete.

I enjoyed this experience very much and am extremely happy I had the opportunity to go. I learned to work with players I would never had the chance to play with and to adapt to different levels of play. I will take this knowledge with me when I play for Kingman High varsity basketball.

I would like to thank my sponsors: Shadow Canyon Co. LLC, Danceability, KJJJ radio, Barbara Ricca Realty, and my family.

We would like to thank all of Kingman for making the Kingman Street Drags V a huge success. It was a great event for the community and brought a lot of business to Kingman. We would like to thank the Route 66 Wings and Wheels organization for all their hard work. These people put in countless hours and months of planning to organize the event. The volunteers who worked all weekend deserve awards for their efforts. Also, thank you to all the city and county government agencies for allowing this event to take place.

We would especially like to thank the residents of downtown Kingman. They put up with days of noise and traffic. Thank you for your kindness and patience.

As sponsor of this event we saw first-hand the amount of work involved and would like to thank everyone for their help and support for making this event a success for the entire town.

I want to thank Taryn Ogden, the Banking Center manager at Bank of America so much. This young lady went out of her way to help a stranded Kingman citizen. I ran out of gas, and couldn't contact any help, and she took time out of her busy schedule, made sure I was comfortable, got me some water, and drove to the gas station to get some gas to start me back on my way. She is an angel and a lifesaver.

No, I am not a BofA customer, but after this display of extreme kindness I certainly will be. Thanks again, Taryn, for all you help. It is nice to know some people still care about others.

On behalf of Route 66 Wings and Wheels, Inc., I would like to give a big thank you to the dancers, singers, and karate demonstrators for their performance at the Kingman Street Drags V on Sept. 21.

The talented youth at Kingman Dance Factory, DanceAbility Dance Studio and White Wind Tiger Foundation, along with Madi Williams, Amber Payne, Chantel Menk, Jessica Brockway and Miss Wings & Wheels, Kimmie Adams, put on an incredibly talented show for the spectators. Your participation and hard work is greatly appreciated.
