Soldier’s mother expresses thanks to the community

To the community of Enid:

I would like to thank all of the people for their caring love and support the day of my son’s funeral (SSG Clint Storey). I was so overwhelmed.

I’d also like to thank all of those who sent flowers, cards and letters of condolence. They were comforting and very much appreciated. I’m very proud of our community, my son would be also.

Thanks to the high school students who I heard ran the protesters out of town.

A special thanks to Enid businesses for their support and contribution, Enid Cemetery, Pellow Monuments, Plants-a-Plenty, Huffman Floral, Davis Park, Moto Photo, Central Christian and Emmanuel Churches, Enid News & Eagle, Channel 9 and 4 for the great coverage.

A very special thanks to Matt and the Henninger Allen staff, Virgil Sanders (military xoordinator), Doris and the entire Wal-Mart staff, the VVA, the Patriot Riders, and last but not east, Elaine Johns of Woodring Airport. Thanks Enid for everything.
