I read a moving blog post on Caring Bridge today from Jennifer Henley. So, rather than steal her thunder- I'm just going to share it:
I just got done watching a video done by Mark Magin for an airshow that our friends are putting on to help support Alan and I'm crying my eyes out. We are very blessed to be a part of an industry that is so much more than just about flying. It's a family. I cannot thank each of the performers enough who have offered to participate in this event. We love you all so much and honestly it's hard to write because I'm crying so hard but I want you all to know how much we appreciate you, how much we value our relationships with you and how much we love you from the bottom of our heart.
The performers are: Sean Tucker, Patty Wagstaff, Steve and Suzanne Oliver, Gene Soucy and Teresa Stokes, John Mohr, Greg Koontz, Gary Ward, Freddy Cabanas, Iron Eagles, Red Thunder, Jimmy Fordham, Fowler 'Big Dog' Cary, Greg Poe, Jim 'Fang' Maroney, The Red Eagles, Third Strike Wingwalking, Gary Rower, Dale 'Snort Snodgrass, Lee Lauderback, and our team, the AeroShell Aerobatic Team. Danny Clisham will be announcing with Hugh Oldham on sound and Wayne Boggs will be airbossing with Brian Lorenz at his side.
This all would not be possible without the love and incredible work of one woman, Bobbi Thompson. We know how hard you have worked on this and we love you so much for that. You are a true angel. ... Read more.
