I wish to thank my fellow firefighters on the Waitsfield-Fayston, Moretown, and Warren fire departments for their heroic efforts fighting the fire at my sawmill and sugarhouse. They have been and continue to be great support to me.

Also thank you to the Mad River Valley Ambulance for standing by at the scene.

I am grateful for the help of Kingsbury Construction and David Armstrong for cleaning up the aftermath.

My family, friends, and many community member’s support has made navigating the loss easier.
