District Director Larry Jones became seriously ill while at a class in Springfield on November 3rd. We are happy to report that as of publication time, Larry is now home and on the mend! Larry and Ann wanted to pass along the following message.
There are really no words to express how grateful we are for our firefighter family. You were there from the beginning, offering to take us to the emergency room or to do anything we needed. It has been a long journey and we still have a way to go. Our goal is to have him home by Christmas so we are praying by the time you read this he will be at the Jones’s house. We can not even begin to THANK YOU for all your calls, texts, cards, and offers of help. We were so blessed to receive the money collected at the FFAM December Board Meeting. A benefit was held at Madison and a lot of you showed your support by driving from all over Missouri to come. But most of all, thank you for all your prayers. Only because of all of those prayers was he able to come off of 3 life supports.
When people talk about a firefighter family, until they feel it happen, they really don’t know how wonderful it is.
Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts. Larry and Ann Jones
