To The Daily Sun,
I'm writing to express my deepest gratitude to all citizens of state Senate District 2 who have offered prayers and support since my beloved Christine was stricken on Jan. 18. For those many who have sent cards, cooked meals for us, cared for our pets, plowed our driveway, helped with groceries, and babysat our home, please know that you have greatly eased the difficulties we faced early on. It is at times like this that you prove time and time again the love, care and concern of neighbor for neighbor here in our great state of New Hampshire.
Our family has been present at Chrissy's bedside all day, every day at DHMC, and we know that she is receiving the finest care possible from the world-renowned teams that have been treating her. While she has made some minor gains, our road to recovery is going to be long and arduous. We accept whatever the future may bring, and remain firm in our faith and undiminished in our resolve.
As your state senator, please know that I will continue to fulfill my obligation to represent you in Concord. My Senate colleagues, the Senate staff and Gov. Sununu have been superb in working with me to ensure that I am fully engaged, and you are fully represented on the issues important to you and to our state. Just as I continue to honor my oath to love, honor and cherish Christine, I will continue to honor my oath of office in service to you.
I close with gratitude and humility for the prayers, kindness and compassion you continue to visit on Christine and our family. And I ask you to please remember to cherish your loved ones, each and every day of your life.
State Senator, District 2
