To The Herald-Whig:

We would like to convey our deepest appreciation and most sincere thanks to all who have expressed their sympathies, offered prayers of love and support, and provided assistance to our family these past several weeks during the search for John Flaiz.

The outpouring of concern, kindness, and generosity from extended family, friends, and the entire community continues to touch us and has provided us with much needed strength during this most difficult time.

We would especially like to thank the emergency, police, and fire agencies, departments and entities, charitable organizations, the many businesses, churches, and organizations who have given so generously of their time and resources to help aid and comfort us during our search.

In addition, we want to acknowledge the countless individuals who provided our family and volunteers with food, drinks, gifts, and emotional support. There are too many to list, but we remain profoundly grateful for your thoughts, prayers, and kindness.

While we continue to hope for some form of closure, and still grieve our loss, we also feel so very blessed to share our lives with so many wonderful people.

 

John Flaiz family
