Frantz family offers thanks

Letter to the Editor

On May 8, my husband, Steve Frantz, was involved in a motorcycle accident. We would like to thank the Dougherty County EMS for being there with Steve at the accident site and for all their valiant efforts to get him to the hospital. Dr. Black and his trauma team at Phoebe Putney ER worked tirelessly to stabilize Steve.

Drs. Holey, Palazzolo and Vilidibill tried everything in their power to save him. The third floor SICU nurses never left Steve’s side throughout the night. No words can express the gratitude we have to all of you for not only the care you provided Steve, but also your compassion. A special thank you to Dr. Vilidibill.

We would also like to thank Ross Powell and the staff and members of Sherwood Baptist Church and Pastor Dan Storey and Bethel Baptist for being there with us. We would especially like to thank Jos Bekkers, Janet Shanks, Chris Hester and the Riverpointe Country Club family for helping us carry out Steve’s wishes. All of you will always have a special place in our hearts.
