Gratitude expressed for care in father's last days

Thanks for the compassionate, high-level care provided to our father, Ray E. Hall, during his stay at St. Mary's Neuro/Trauma ICU. A special thanks goes out to Dr. Ignatiadis and his surgical team for providing expert care. All medical options were offered and the staff gathered around our family providing professional, unbiased support, even when we decided to choose only "comfort care." They are an awesome team!

The transition to Hospice House was caringly provided by the Cabell County Ambulance Service. Thanks guys!

On reaching Hospice House, we settled in and our Dad improved. We were able to spend five days with him, allowing for out-of-town family to arrive. We were very thankful that he experienced death with dignity. We are all blessed to have the Hospice House and its amazing staff in our community.

Lastly, thanks to all the staff and residents at Midland Meadows Senior Living. The staff provided loving family care to our Dad and to us at every stage. No words can express our gratitude. We will miss being a part of the Midland Meadow's family.

Use of truck for high school parade was kind

Dear Mr. Ferguson,

Thank you so much for allowing us to use your trailer in the parade at Huntington High's Homecoming. Our float was called CANDYLAND and everyone who participated had a very good time.

It is because of kind people like you that events like this one are made possible. We are truly thankful for your kindness.

They were Sylvia Johnson McCallister, Betty McComas Poynter, Esta Steffy White, Nellie Cartmill Hutchinson, Cecelia Pynn Stoler, Maxine Stevens Gwilliams, Louie Hutchinson, Mac Chapman and Fred Erwin.

We enjoyed it so, we are planning another one soon.

Veterans section, photo were very appreciated

I want to thank you for the wonderful "Salute to Veterans Section" in The Herald-Dispatch on Nov. 4. I am sure it was appreciated by many veterans and their families. I know our family and friends did.

Also I want to thank you for the members of The Marine Corps League Det. #340 for the picture you put in of some of them that I sent you. Once again, thank you.
