Dear Editor:

Our family wanted to take a moment to thank the men and women of the Massac County Fire Department, the Joppa Fire Department and the Brookport Fire Department for all their hard work trying to save our home.

You all worked so hard and risked your own lives to save it. Even though it was a lost cause, our heart feels blessed by all you did.

Also to Massac County High School, Massac Junior High and Jefferson Elementary, thank you for loving our kids. We appreciate all the gifts, prayers and encouraging words that so many showered onto our children. When a teacher loves, they love big.

So many friends have reached out to us in so many ways, and we couldn't feel more blessed. Thank you, everyone.
