To the editor:
My dogs were involved in a senseless shooting on Nov. 8 2011. I would like to take this time to thank everyone for giving their time, compassion and donations.
To the amazing girls that started all the fundraising, Frannie Geesler, Tyra Dramm and Kitty Patnode, I can never say thank you enough!
To all the businesses that put out donation jars: Zig Zags, Placid Bay Inn, The Wine and Spirit Shoppe, Great Adirondack Steak and Seafood, Roomers, and The Breakfast Club.
For all of the private donations, calls, and emails showed my girls and I how much we are loved.
I need to give a special thank you to Rob Mullarney and Kirsten Devlin for going above and beyond in one of the most chaotic times in my life.
Even though Pax lost his life at 6 months old it was overwhelming knowing how many people I had standing behind me. Gunner is still recovering and has amazed everyone with his progress. He is my hero. Last but not least I would like to thank the Lake Placid Animal Hospital and The Peru Veterinary Hospital who did an amazing job with Gunner's surgery.
I am very grateful to live in such a community and thankful for all that was done for my family.
My heart goes out to you all.
