To the editor:
First off let me say thank you for your concern about my brother. This goes for those in the community that called the Democrat to ask for an update. We are very greatful for your concern and prayers.
My family would like to thank four people in particular. These people played a big role in saving my brothers life on Saturday, June 22. Paul Wilson and Billy Beckett were in the water helping my dad pull my brother to safety. Both of these gentlemen were willing to risk their lifes and that means a lot to the whole family. We would like to thank Benny Northcutt for using is truck to drive Jimmy from the river to the road so he could be airlifted. We would also like to thank April Claypool, as well as the other firefighters and EMT’s. April is the only one that Jimmy remembers. When I told him that she asked about him on Facebook he said “she is the one that told me I was going to be ok.”
Jimmy is a strong person and has a long road ahead of him. Please continue to pray for a fast full recovery. He is being transfered to Cardinal Hill today to begin rehab. Once again thanks from the bottom of our hearts for your prayers already. God bless you all.
Nina Hall and
the entire Hall family
