This letter is a huge thank you to the firefighters of the Golden Valley Fire Department, the entire staff at Denny's Restaurant of Kingman and Darrell Pettee and his family.
All of you are so compassionate, giving and thoughtful. It's hard to find the right words to express how very much your time and efforts to provide Thanksgiving food boxes to the families of Mentally Ill Kids in Distress mean to me. Maybe knowing that 17 families received a turkey, stuffing, 10 pounds of potatoes, green beans, mushroom soup, cranberries, rolls, milk, butter and a pumpkin pie. A few moms had tears in their eyes when they saw me at their door or the 3-year-old who said, "Miss Nancy, thank you, thank you for the food."
I feel honored to know each and every one of you and to call you friends. Some of you are heroes, acknowledged by your profession; all of you are heroes of life in my eyes, and I thank you.
