Father thankful for community support

To the editor:

My family and I wanted to express our deepest gratitude to the fine residents of Sidney and its surrounding communities. Everyone should know that we all live in a community that responds with love and care when the darkest hours are upon us. The smallest to the largest of thoughtful acts touched us tremendously and is not lost on us. As I have sat in terrible grief for the untimely loss of my Son by another, I also must acknowledge these incredible organizations and caring men and women in this community.

To the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, The Ohio State Patrol, Sidney Police Department, Sidney Fire Department, Shelby County Veterans Services, Sidney City School District, the Adams Funeral Home, and the men and women who braved the frigged wind on a cold February evening, Thank you from the bottom of our very humble hearts.
