To the 911 Operators, First Responders, EMTs, Ambulance Crew, and everyone who came to help: Thank you for your quick and careful response to my call last Friday.  Gene had quite the flight from the rafters of our shop.  He broke his pelvis in three spots and has a fracture in his spine.  Your response and care were commendable!  He is home now and has been enjoying visits and cards from friends and family. He loves the visits!  We appreciate all the prayers that have been and are still being lifted! Thank you!  ~ Gene and Linda Burnett, Amanda, Justin and Taylor, and Cory and Brook, Ethan and Kael
