Heartfelt thanks to all emergency staff (01/19/2014)
From: Chris Antoff

It is with heartfelt thanks that I write this letter of gratitude for all the folks involved in the rescue and recovery of the tragic loss of lives, in our recent Mississippi River accident. Winona is so very fortunate to have great Police and Sheriff’s departments, First Responders, SOAR, Dive and Rescue Team, Fire Department and Sheriff’s Posse for every emergency we encounter. We can always count on their expertise! Many people volunteered hundreds of hours of their time to assist with this huge task.

It was so wonderful having the extra assistance of the La Crosse and Olmsted County Dive and Rescue personnel to relieve our teams, too. There were many “out of area” units assisting in so many ways with sonar, dogs, etc. I can’t begin to name them all, for fear I’ll miss some. I thank them also.

Thanks to the friends, families and local merchants that donated food and beverages to those assisting. Nourishment is so important!

I can’t begin to express my sadness to the families of all these victims. My sympathy and prayers go out to them in their loss. May they find comfort in the good memories they’ve made with their loved ones.
