The Prestera Foundation would like to thank everyone who attended and helped make "A Tropical Escape, a benefit for Prestera Center" a HUGE success.

Thank you to our major corporate sponsors -- Lee Graphics Printing & Office Supplies, Payne and Garlow Insurance, Peoples Bank, Moses AutoMall, United Bank and Wells Fargo Insurance. Thanks to our corporate table sponsors and thank you to our event contributors. Thank you to the local businesses that donated to our silent auction. Thanks to MU Facilities and MU Dining Services.

A big thanks goes to those "behind the scenes": Eagle Distributing, Wine & Beverage Merchants of WV, The Herald-Dispatch, The Cabell County Vocational and Technical Center, Big Sandy Superstore Arena and, of course, the many wonderful volunteers who made it all possible!

Let's do it again in 2014!

This letter is to thank St. Mary's Medical Center for my mom Brenda Bates' stay, and especially to three really special nurses on the fourth floor. Starting on April 15, Mom was in the hospital for three days in Room 4179. We want to thank Lacka, Staci and Travis for the special care they gave her. We also want to thank Dr. Shawn Coffman for all his help that he's given us over the years.

We need more kind people in the world like these four special people.

I would like to thank my family and friends who gathered on April 20, 2013, to make my 100th birthday celebration such a glorious occasion. The love shown to me and the many acts of kindness will long be appreciated.

Thank you to Mayor Steve Williams for the proclamation from the city of Huntington. Thank you to the Pullman Plaza Hotel for its excellent service.

Thanks to all of you, I have many happy memories of my 100th birthday.

Bless your heart.
