The families of Rick and David Mills and Gery Davies would like to thank all those who gave their time, effort and loving support in this difficult situation. In particular, we wish to express our gratitude to the Kake Search and Rescue, Kake Police Department, Sitka Mountain Search and Rescue, the U.S. Coast Guard, the Alaska State Troopers, L.A.B. Flying Service and all the people in the communities of Southeast Alaska who offered their support.
We would like to give a special thanks to those individuals who took the incentive to do a service for the departeds' families and friends in Juneau. In addition, we are grateful to those too numerous to mention, who extended their support to our families. However, it is the entire community of Kake that will forever have a special place in our hearts for its support. The efforts and love shown by the people of Kake illustrate the reason why we love this special place and chose to raise our families here. Words cannot express our appreciation for the many hours of effort and personal sacrifice that the people of Kake gave in the search for our beloved ones.
