Thank you from Laura Emmett

Words can not express my and my family’s appreciation for the outpouring of support from my campus family. Thank you to everyone who came to the breakfast, donated to the fund, sent flowers, gifts, cards, sent a meal and came to visit. It’s been a tough and long journey, but your support is certainly helping me get through it. A great big thank you to Diane Williams and OAS, Jimmy Hamm and Sodexo, Monica Gray and everyone who helped put the breakfast together and serve at the breakfast.
