To the editor: A big thank you to so many during recovery from illness

To the communities of Cavendish, Proctorsville, Chester and Ludlow:  A most sincere thank you to everyone who has been there for my family and me during my recovery from an unexpected illness after a planned surgery.

Letters to the editor logo 3You have been exceptionally supportive and we couldn’t be more grateful. All the cards, daily dinners and rides to appointments have made this process manageable, the culmination of which being the amazing benefit dinner spearheaded by the Cavendish Baptist Church and a few very special friends and run by countless volunteers.

I’m not going to attempt to name all of you because the list would simply be too long. And that, truly is the point of this heartfelt thank you. I simply cannot put into words what it is like to live in a town where when you fall, hundreds of people rally to pick you up.

I do need to publicly thank my parents, Paul and Norma Ippolito, for being there with me during my hospital stay. Being away from my family was the hardest part of this journey and because of you, Jeremiah could be with the girls. That was the biggest gift of all; knowing my family was together and all right.

Praise God, I’m on the road to a full recovery and I have all of you: my family, my friends and my neighbors to thank for it.

With gratitude,
Cara Tyrrell
