A sincere thank you
On October 13 at the Vail Mountain School soccer field, I had an unexpected medical emergency. I wish to thank everyone who came to my aid: The coaches and parents, of both Vail Mountain School and Basalt, my fellow officials and players. The professional emergency medical teams from Vail, Vail Valley Medical Center emergency team, Dr. Linton, Vail Fire Department, Flight for Life, Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center, Dr. Miller, the intensive care unit and the staff of medical people on the ninth floor at Presbyterian and all the supportive people in Vail and Denver medical centers.
My friends within the soccer community and friends old and new, thank you all from the whole of my heart. I am here today because of each and every one of your concerns and professional actions. Once more, thank you all.
Sincerely,David E. Marjoram
