I will never be able to thank you enough for your kindness with the hotel and my airfare. You took such a financial burden off me. The trip would have been quite costly without your help. I‘m sorry it took me so long to write this but I‘ve been recovering from the trip. It was very emotional and very draining.....You asked about the C.O.P.S. sessions; they were very helpful and very informative. I learned a lot and I met so many wonderful people. Some I hope will become life long friends. Again I will always be very grateful for your help with the trip. Your foundation is amazing.
Thank you. Pamela Gresko

We want to thank you so very much for paying ofr our hotel rooms in Washington DC for National COPS Week. I don‘t know how we would have made it without your financial assistance. We want you to know that it has been an honor working with you. You are so organized and yet caring.
We enjoyed meeting Mitch while we were there and talking to him on the phone later.
We also want to thank you for the crystal plaque (statue) that you sent to us with Aaron‘s name on it. It was a very pleasing surprise.
Thank you so much for everything.
Sincerely, Laretta, Robert, and Family
