Letters to the Editor

So grateful for all your support | Letters

Dear Island Family;

We are so thankful for the beautiful Celebration of Life that you all put on for my brother Sam Carter.

You all worked hard to make a wonderful farewell for him and we are without words to express how grateful we are. Please be certain that the gift of a celebration of Sam with you all was the best way for us to spend our Christmas this year.

We thank you for your kind sacrifices of time, energy, money, food music and love... Sam was well-honored not just by the celebration, but also by all that you all did to plan, help us be there with you, and clean up afterwards.

Thank you all so much. Quyana! (which means thank you in Aleut). We love you all very deeply. Thank you again,

Alycia, Lionel, Quyanna and Cayeden

Kenai, Alaska
