An Open Letter to the People of Andes

Dear Friends,

As news of my husband Stan’s hospitalization and critical illness spread through the community, I soon found myself inundated with expressions of love and concern. Offers poured in to help in any way possible. Literally hundreds of people prayed for Stan’s recovery.

Defying all the odds, my husband was finally released from the hospital and transferred to Binghamton General Hospital Rehab Center. It will be a long time before he can resume a normal life. As he slowly regains his strength, my heart is filled with peace, love, and gratitude to God and to all the people of Andes. You have become my family, and I love you for it.
