FROM FIRE CHIEF JON KINN

I would like to thank my entire family especially my wife, Mandy, my parents, Larry and Barb and all my friends  for all of their prayers, support and words of encouragement during my recent medical issue. 

The words, cards and support have been both extremely appreciated and humbling to say the least.  A big thank you to my co-workers and “brothers” at the fire department for filling in for me when I was out on leave. 

Bluffton is a special community where we know and care for each other in difficult times and all of your support has helped me way more than I can explain.  Thank you is not enough, but Thank You!!!
