Editor, Times-Union:
I just want to say a big thank you to all my family, friends, co-workers and new acquaintances for making my benefit a huge success. It was so good to see all of you. The generosity of everyone was amazing. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

A special thank you to all the people who helped make the benefit happen. For the advertising, a special thanks to Dan Walcott (Eagle Signs) for all the billboards, Laura Sowers for all the help at the Times-Union and to The Paper with articles and ads. Thank you to Kim and Rick Harley, Deb and Dan Lance for all the planning and managing of the benefit; Terry Himes for all the great food; Henry for doing a very interesting job as the auctioneer; and Donnie Radabaugh for letting us have the benefit at Susie’s Sandbar.

I also want to say a big thank you to family, friends and anyone who donated and/or bought things at the auction.

I hope that I didn’t leave anyone out. Thank you again for all the hard work and generosity of everyone. Thank you!

Peg (Gall) Stamper
