Card of Thanks

On March 6, my father, Michael Bagley passed away from complications of COPD. I would like to extend a heartfelt thanks on behalf of myself and our family to Sitka’s first responders, Prewitt Funeral Home, SEARHC, Sitka Lutheran Church, Pastor Sandra Rudd, and the many friends and family members who made this trying time a lot easier. At every turn we encountered nothing but professional behavior and kind, heart-warming compassion.

  In addition, the family extends its gratitude to JBER color guard from Anchorage, Sitka Sportsman’s Association and Bev Brill.

  Thank you, Sitka. My father loved this community and your efforts during this event were appreciated.
