Subject: [NFBAffiliatePresidents] our gratitude for your thoughts and prayers
Those of us at CCB and in the NFB Colorado community want to express our great gratitude for the tremendous show of love and support
from throughout the nation. I am sorry that neither I nor Julie Deden can respond directly to all the messages directed personally
to us. There are just too many. Regardless, your love and support have significantly helped us deal with this tragedy.
As many of you know, the student who passed away is David Nanney who came to the Center from Baltimore. His wife and family have
been dealing with this as strongly and courageously as any could imagine. They have expressed how much the Center meant to David
and that they will be grateful for the independence it gave him. We will be having a memorial for David when our students return
The other two students are both in stable condition and still in the hospital. Their injuries are serious in that both suffered
several broken bones. They will require varying levels of rehab and surgery. However, both are expected to recover fully.
Again, we want to thank you for the tremendous kindness and love you have offered. We will, of course, keep you informed as the
information warrants. We have had quite a few losses in the NFB community this year, Ray McGeorge earlier this year and Priscilla
Mckinnelly just recently, to name just a few. The spirit of all who have passed lives strongly within us, though. As we look
forward to 2011, let us not forget that spirit and continue to work harder than ever before to make tomorrow a better day for the
blind of our nation. From all of here in Colorado, we wish you the best of this holiday season and may peace be with us all.
