...for the support
On Oct. 2, 2001, we lost our mom, Esther Wheaton. She was a wonderful mother, wife, grandma and great-grandma. We would like to express our gratitude and thanks to the following: David from Respiratory; Rob, Martha, Kim, Mouse, Betsy and Leon of CCU-MS; and other staff at Bartlett Regional Hospital. Thank you for being so wonderful and supportive during this difficult time.
We also thank Central Council of Tlingit and Haida Tribes and the council's Tribal Family and Youth Services staff for your assistance and support. It meant a lot to us.
In addition, the family thanks the following SEARHC staff: Dr. Jana Linfield, Dr. Mark Peterson, Dr. Lillian De la Cruz and especially Dr. Deb Lessmeier. Dr. Lessmeier, you were not only Mom's doctor, but you were also her friend.
We also express our gratitude and thanks to Pastor Green of the Valley Church of God, and to family and friends of the family. If we forgot anyone, please forgive us.
The John, David and Wheaton Family
...for your kindness
On Sept. 11 my cousin, Peter Hanson, his wife Sue and their 2-year old daughter Christine, were killed aboard the second aircraft to crash into the World Trade Center. The outpouring of sympathy from the people of Juneau has been overwhelming. Our family would like to thank all those friends and neighbors who have sent flowers or cards, or called or simply stopped by to express their feelings. I have forwarded the cards and relayed the expressions of sympathy to my Aunt Naki and Uncle Lee, Peter's mom and dad. In times like this I realize why I love living in Juneau - it's certainly not the weather.
