Letters to the Editor

Thank you for the support | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

We would like to take this time to praise and give thanks for all the prayers, support, donations and ongoing efforts to help the family of Bryan Walden. For those who don’t know Bryan or hadn’t heard of his accident, he was topping a tree on his property when something dreadful went wrong. He fell about 25 feet with the ladder and tree landing on top of him.

Our thanks to the Arlington EMTs for their quick response, and to all those involved in the airlift to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle; to all those who have been, and continue to help in the medical, rehab and tender care; and to those who visit, give time and helping hands during this crucial time. Bryan is doing very well physically but has a long, hard stretch ahead due to the severe head trauma.

A special thank you to the friends who supported Patti and helped with the fundraising event held Sept. 17. Many friends, families and strangers made this a success, along with time, effort and use of equipment in the beer garden of the Rocket Bowling Alley Bar & Grill. All of these things from the generosity of the hearts of many.

We cannot express adequately our gratitude and feelings. Bless each and every one of you.

The family of Bryan Walden

Dad Les and mom Debbie, brother Kevin and sister Debbie, grandparents Bruce and Molly, Bryan’s wife Patti, Patti’s daughter Paige, Patti’s dad Harold and mom Sharon, and the extended Walden and Bleeck families
