Family of missing Terrace mushroom picker expresses appreciation

"Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as our search continues."

  • Oct. 1, 2013 2:00 p.m.

We’d like to send out our most sincere appreciation to the community of Terrace during our difficult time. We are so thankful to the many people that reached out to our family over the last week.

We appreciate the words of encouragement, the prayers and positive thoughts, the visits, the hugs, and the food.

We’d like to thank the Search and Rescue, Swift Water Rescue, the RCMP and the many businesses that donated their services.

Thank you to the Ormerods who not only allowed more than 100 people onto their property but fed us and offered warmth at the end of the day.

Big, big thanks to all the friends, friends of friends, acquaintances and strangers that spent hours searching and shuttling searchers across the river and continue to do so. Your selflessness warms our hearts and gives us hope.

It’s a phenomenal thing to see the community come together as they have. You should all be incredibly proud of yourselves and your community, as we are.

We can`t begin to thank everyone enough, please know you`re recognized and appreciated. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as our search continues.

Love,

The Murray Family,

Terrace, BC
