To the people of Onaway, Tower and surrounding areas. We have no words to express our gratitude to the friends, neighbors and total strangers who have come together to help us through a bad time. Your words, actions and donations have enabled my wife and I to focus on my recovery and continue our lives in this area, because you opened your hearts to help us. We will forever be grateful to the people of this area. You will never know how much this has meant to us.
Thank you and God bless.
Russell and JoAnn Wilkinson, Onaway
