Dear Marie, Ron and Evert,
On behalf of the Shiawassee County Sheriff's office and all of the law enforcement officers
who were out in the bitter cold Monday night March 3rd, during the standoff with the bank
robber, Thank You! The hot coffee and burgers were appreciated more than you will ever
We are very lucky and blessed to have dedicated Red Cross volunteers like you in Shiawassee
County. When we are on the scene of an incident, we often don't take the time to thank you in
person - while you are right there with us. Please don't ever think that means you are not appreciated.
We just get busy and sometimes forget.
So, please, let this letter serve as my humble acknowledgement of you wonderful bearers of hot food
and hot coffee! You spoil us and we don't ever want you to stop!
George R. Braidwood II
Shiawassee County Sheriff
