Letter to the Editor: ...we found an incredible town

Editor:
Our gratitude...
When Georgia and I moved to Ely in 1954, our thoughts were to have two years of experience in teaching...then move back to our hometown area of central Minnesota...However, after one year we realized that we found an incredible town, filled with loving and kind, caring people...And after 65 years living in Ely...that feeling has grown stronger each year....
Many of you know that our son John was airlifted to the Mayo Hospital in Rochester to be treated again for his serious condition....now, we want to thank all of Ely for their love, concern, and especially your badly needed prayers...for John’s recovery.....we especially want to thank the wonderful, caring staff at our hospital and especially John’s personal doctor, Dr. Jim Montana...who has spent countless hours helping John to recovery...Dr. Montana rode with the ambulance to Hibbing to assure he was taken care of before John’s airlift to Mayo...he mentioned “ if the plane cannot get John to Rochester due to flight conditions, he would continue to be with John by ambulance”...to provide all needed medical care.
What a wonderful, caring and dedication physician...and Brauns’ thank him, with love and gratitude....
John will be in Rochester for a long time., as he recovers his health...your prayers are so needed and appreciated...
With love and gratitude,
The Braun Family
Thanks “Incredible Ely,” our home...
