Editor’s note: The following letter is from a Forest Park resident whose wife had a stroke on April 17. Lisa Mazzone was able to come home from the hospital on June 2. She is doing well now, Joe tells us.

I would like to thank everyone who has helped our family through this difficult time in our lives. The whole town has come together, from the paramedics who got Lisa to the trauma center quickly, to all our friends from St. Bernadine’s, and to all the people Lisa and I work with.

We even made a lot of new friends through these rough times. I know I didn’t see them drop off a meal or a card or flowers, but thanks to everyone. We will be seeing you soon out on our great little town. It’s nice to know there are a lot of good people left in this world. Thanks again,

Joe Mazzone
