We would like to send out a message to anyone who prayed for, thought about, or visited Shane Manis after his wreck Wednesday. We love our small town because of its support and helpful attitude. We are amazed at the amount of support shown by countless people from family, neighbors, close and distant friends, acquaintances, and even strangers. It is much appreciated and much needed as well. He is doing great and very lucky, although he will need surgery on his knee, so he will need constant prayers for awhile. We cannot thank everyone enough.
We would also like to take a moment to reach out to the Good Samaritan(s) who pulled Shane to safety. We would like to thank you personally, but we understand if you wish to remain anonymous. It means so much to us and to Shane that you would stop and help in his time of need. It is comforting to know that there was someone to aid him and to be with him until help arrived.
Please keep us in your prayers, and again, we would like to thank everyone for their support. With our faith and your support he should make a full recovery.
