Injured teen was lucky, is thankful

I would like to thank everyone who offered their wishes, prayers, and support following my recent accident. Dr. Linda Keirstead and nurse Becky Malone, thanks for taking professional care of me. A big thank you to the Haines Borough Police Department. Officer Simon Ford, you are the man! Thanks for handling the situation so well, I am appreciative for your services. Al Badgley, thank you for putting a smile on my face when I needed it most. Jim Stanford and New Hope Fellowship, your care and assistance means a lot. Big ups to Bruce Bauer, your willingness to come aid, love, and to be at my side really helped out. You kept my mom, Carrie Brown, and me in track, which you couldn’t have done any better. To all my friends, thanks for the support; you all mean a lot to me. Mom, sorry for the dispatcher’s worst nightmare, but you handled it excellently. I love you and am proud to be your son. 

I am continuing the recovery process and am doing very well. I got very lucky. I hope that teenagers and my peers in this community learn to make responsible choices.
