... for your support in our time of bereavement
We lost our father, Peter John Sr., on Aug. 17, 2003. We would like to thank the following for providing assistance and support to us during this painful time: Ed and Cathy Thomas and Bill Martin of Central Council of Tlingit & Haida; Tribal Family & Youth Services Department; Tlingit & Haida Community Council; Wildflower Court; Cornerstone Home Health; SEARHC; and especially to our friends and family who were there for us. We hold onto the solace that Dad is no longer in pain and is in a better place. Thank you so very much.

... from NAMI
During this past Mental Illness Awareness Week many individuals, community organizations, churches and agencies worked together to end stigmatizing beliefs surrounding mental illness by raising public awareness. I would like to especially thank Connie Munro of the Unitarians, Mike Christianson of JAMHI, Pat Dobbins of NAMI Juneau, Chris Garrison of Creative Source, the many members of Polaris House, Sharron Lobaugh and all of the participants in the community-wide candlelight vigils. Remember all those who still suffer with mental illness and have hope for their recovery.

...for support in Iraq
My husband Lui currently serves in the U.S. Army and served in Operation Iraqi Freedom with a deployment in Iraq for 10 months. I am grateful for the outpouring of well-wishes, love and support we received during this difficult time. It was a very comforting feeling to feel the love and support from the community of Juneau.
We would like to offer a heartfelt thank you for the help and support we received during Lui's deployment in Iraq, along with his homecoming. The love we felt was overwhelming and very much welcomed.
To the following groups and businesses we would like to offer and extra-special thank you. What was given to us by these people was not only an abundance of gifts, but also sincerity and kindness, which made us realize how much our friends in Juneau appreciate Lui and the U.S. military. Thanks so much to all of our friends and family, Hickok's Trading Co., DK Mining, St. Paul's Churh (for their prayers), TBG Office Solutions, Alaskan Dames and Gents Consignment Shop, Fireweed Bed and Breakfast, the Garcia Family, Integrity Automotive, the Baranof Hotel, the Goldbelt Hotel, WIngs of Alaska, El Sombrero's, AJ Mine/Gastineau Mill Ent., T.K.

... from Hospice
The Lynn Canal Cabaret, Hotel, Restaurant & Retailers Association sponsored the Alaska Cabaret, Hotel, Restaurant & Retailers Association (C.H.A.R.R.) annual convention in Juneau during the week of September 22.
C.H.A.R.R. held a charity auction at the Moose Lodge with the Juneau Hospice Foundation as beneficiary of the auction proceeds.
The auction raised $16,718 for local hospice and end-of-life care.
Hospice services meet a variety of needs, from honoring patient desires, advance directives and choice of services, to pain control tailored to patient wishes. In addition, hospice services offer emotional, spiritual and bereavement support for patients and families.
Juneau Hospice Foundation expresses its heartfelt thanks to the many C.H.A.R.R. members who both contributed auction items as well as purchased them at the fun and successful event.
