Thank you. There are the most sincere and powerful words I can offer you. Almost 4 years ago, you saved my Dad from a horrible fate. The 20 minutes he had left, you took seriously and because of it, I have another Father’s Day with him worth celebrating.
You have saved the man that taught me how to ride my bike, how to ski and how to slide into home plate. You have saved evening dinners filled of laughter at his corny jokes. You have allowed for men to come and ask for permission to marry his daughters. You have saved us tears and instead provided memories filled with hope and love. You have provided us the gift of time, one in which we came so close to losing. Thank you. Thank you for saving the life of my dad, my mom and the rest of our family. He is the keystone that holds us together and with all of my heart and soul, I thank you. I will forever be grateful for that work that you do, because to me, you are heroes.
