John and Doug,

As a member of the CAF, and a guy from your backyard, (not to mention a Redtail fan), I just wanted to say thank you both, for commenting on this terrible event. It would be so easy for you guys to dismiss all of the "armchair enthusiast" speculation, and gossip, etc., and to focus on the matters at hand. But no, you both joined your friends on the WIX and gave us your thoughts in this very difficult time.

The loss of Don and the Redtail is unbelievably huge, and I am so proud of you guys, and especially Don's family, for the positive, move forward, attitude you have all displayed in putting Don's dream back in the air. From the few times that I talked to Don when he flew into the Rice Lake airport, I can only agree with you in saying that he wouldn't want it any other way.

You both, as well as Don's family, and all the rest of the folks this tragedy has touched are in my and my family's prayers.

To Don and the Redtail..........

Steve

Eloquently stated, as always, Mr. Dennis.

The Lord's hand of comfort to surviving family and friends,

Dan
