Bryan Walden

Thank you for help, support after accident

We would like to take this time to praise and give thanks for all the prayers, support, donations and ongoing efforts to help the family of Bryan Walden. For those who don't know Bryan or haven't heard of his accident, he was topping a tree on his property when something dreadful went wrong. He fell about 25 feet with the ladder and tree landing on top of him.
Our thanks to the Arlington EMTs for their quick response; and to all those involved in the airlift to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Thanks to all those who have been, and continue to help in the medical, rehab and tender care. Thanks to those who visit, give time and helping hands during this crucial time. Bryan is doing very well physically, but has a long, hard stretch ahead due to the severe head trauma.
A special thank you to the friends who supported Patti and helped with the fund-raising event help Sept. 17. Many friends, families and strangers made this a success, along with time, effort and use of equipment in the beer garden of the Rocket Bowling Alley Bar-Grill. All of these things from the generosity of the hearts of many.
We cannot express adequately our gratitude and feelings. Bless each and every one of you.
