Dear Editor:

On Behalf of Brady Yurista and the entire Yurista and Smith Families, we would like to extend our sincerest thanks and gratitude to Father Francis P. Shoenauer, St Fancis of Assisi Parish, and surrounding churches, and the entire Panther Valley Community. The time and effort put into the Benefit for Brady Fund Raiser held at St Francis of Assisi Church Hall, was truly amazing and will always be remembered and appreciated.

The generous gifts, contributions, donations and baked goods, as well as the overwhelming turnout, have and will continue to help the Yuristas both emotionally and financially, during Brady's road to recovery. The many thoughts and prayers said on behalf of Brady are shown through his amazing recovery thus far.

From the bottom of our hearts, and souls, Thank you to everyone, for all of your help and support. We especially would like to thank all of the businesses in the Panther Valley who so generously put up promotional flyers, and donated gifts and certificates to be won at the Chinese auction. Thanks also go out to the many, many "Angles" who so tirelessly worked to organize and run this wonderful event.

Once again the Panther Valley, "The Valley with a Huge Heart" has shown its true colors, where Family, Faith, and Community, are first and foremost in all of our hearts and minds.

May God Bless and keep you all,

Brady Yurista

And the Entire Yurista and Smith Families.
