Thanks to the Juneau businesses who helped make this year's Jump Rope Regional Competition a resounding success. Thanks to Southeast Pepsi Distributors and the Coca Cola Bottling Company for donating all the water and to Alaskan & Proud, Breeze Inn, Bullwinkles, Costco, Fred Meyer, Heritage Coffee, Safeway and Superbear for donating food and coffee.

... for your concern
To my family, friends and church family, thank you for your visits, gifts, get well cards and correspondence. Your concern and love is greatly appreciated. Thank you again.
... for the gifts of prayer, love, support
To the many families, friends and organizations who supported and encouraged us during our mother's brief hospitalization, until her passing.
To Catholic Community Service, Bridge Adult Day Care Program and the Care-a-Van Transportation Service, we extend our deepest appreciation for the love and the care you gave our mother while she was still with us. She attended the Bridge Adult Day Care for the past six years and during that time was blessed with companionship. Our mom enjoyed sharing in meals, visiting, dancing, playing and laughing with you and other seniors. We were comforted and assured knowing that our mom was in the hands of folks who care.
During our mother's illness, the outpouring of love and support our family received through phone calls, personal visits, prayers, cards, flowers and monetary gifts, from folks both near and far, has been overwhelming for us. Without hesitation, many friends, relatives and acquaintances opened their homes to our family and friends from out of town, providing transportation and prepared meals. Your gifts gave us the opportunity to devote all our attention to our mother, and for that we will be forever grateful.
Although we would like to acknowledge each and every person by name, the numbers are too numerous to list; we could only name a few. Thank you to the emergency room staff on call when our mother was admitted, Dr. Lindy Jones; our mother's physicians, Dr. Maureen Longworth and Dr. Deb Lessmeier from SEARHC; the nursing staff at Bartlett Regional Hospital; neurologist Dr. Susan Hunter-Joerns; the Alaska Native Sisterhood/Brotherhood, camps 70 and 7; Central Council Tlingit and Haida; CCS and Hopsice and Home Care for their endless efforts in helping us at times of uncertainty; and Father Tony Dummer and Sandy Nolan of St. Paul's Catholic Church for the beautiful service. Again, thanks to each of you for the footprints, your footprints left on our mother's heart and on ours.

... to the friends of Rebecca and to Juneau
The loss of our sister, Rebecca Mass, has caused our family great grief and sorrow. The tragedy could have been worsened by not knowing where she was laid to rest. The many friends in Juneau went to such great lengths, sacrificing their time and energy to find her, went above and beyond the call of duty. Their efforts showed compassion, love and kindness for Rebecca that undoubtedly created emotional hardships for all that participated in the search. Yet the persistence of all who gave up time with their families and other pursuits to find Rebecca will always be appreciated by her family and never forgotten.
Her funeral took place Feb. 26 in New Jersey. We are comforted to know that she is at rest and that we had the opportunity to bury her appropriately. Her many admirers and friends were mentioned and thought of throughout the funeral. Thank you for everything that each one of you did for her and ultimately for us.
