Hi Folks,

After about 26 days in the Ohio State Burn Center I am now back home. I'd like to express my deepest gratitude for the many prayers, cards, emails, calls, & visitors that I received, many from folks I had never met but 'knew' from VAF......amazing! Every card was special in its own way......a great feeling to know that people really care.

Having crawled through the fire to get away from the burning plane my wounds were/are rather severe. This has been a life changing accident in many ways. As my body heals I will look foward to sharing my experience. Right now I'm grateful to be alive and to have a finger to type with .

Thanks for the update Rick. I pray for your healing every single day, friend. Anything you need, day or night, don't hesitate to ask.

Thankful,
Doug

Rick,

I'm so glad you're back home. I was thinking about you earlier today and was wondering how things were going. That's the best report we could have gotten.

Welcome back...
Phil

Rick.
I missed your avatar.
What a great sight to see Snoopy back on his
dog house firing away.

Get well soon, I'll fly down and buy you a piece of pie,
Chox

Hey now....I resemble that statement - I'm typing with a middle finger!

We've all been thinking about you and have tried to give you time and space to heal. We'll touch base when time allows, for now we want you to focus on healing (both mentally & physically).

Best wishes from the entire Steinair team - we can't wait till you get better and we send thoughts your way every day.

Stein

Thumbs up Rick

Rick,

I cant describe how happy just seeing you back here made me feel!

It made my whole week!

After my scare a year or so ago I too know the power of VAF and how many people out here care about you in times of need.

I think I speak for just about everyone here when I say..."if there's anything"...I know it gets said a lot and blown off a lot but we are a different breed we VAF folks!

I think you will see in the coming days and weeks that I'm not the only one that not only wishes you well but will do whatever we can for you and your family!

All you need is to ask and amazing things happen sometimes.

Be well, rest up, it'll be a long pull but we're here with you every step of the way.

God speed Rick, good to hear from you Son!!

Good to hear from you man, glad you made it out alive.

One finger is all you need man, keep us informed. We would all like to know what happened.
