Thank You Notes from ordinary people who face some of life's most difficult situations

"Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves."

James Matthew Barrie

Howdy, to our concerned support teams, friends and family.
I got Kathy home today about 3 p.m., she just got back from Houston and all of her scans came back very good!!!!
We have now had one year of solid good scans for the first time in over 6 years. Kathy is enjoying the Grammies right now and is really high spirits. After we got home and ate she got to see the wild birds, we have been feeding, through all of the snow and bad weather. Near early sunset 15 deer came into the back yard, 4 were bucks and one of those had a big rack. I told her I had them come out to say, "Hi and Happy Valentine's Day", just for you!!!!!!!!!
This year is sure looking up in so many way. We are so thankful, I just had to share our joy with the ones who have stood by us and have supported us with prayers, friendship and powerful thoughts through all of this. I am feeling stronger mentally and spiritually after going through such a draining, dark and confused time.
We want to thank all of you, the Churches and organizations you belong too, to know we love you and that we are truly thankful for all of you and the blessings God has given us.
Please pass our gratefulness on to all.
Happy Valentine's Day!!!!!!!!!!!
Love and Gods Blessings,
Kathy and Steve Hargis

Houston Ground Angels are people who without their knowledge give strength and courage to those who are blessed by their giving.

We just found out about Houston Ground Angels by sheer accident.
We flew into Ellington Airport and had called a cab to get us to our hotel when the nicest lady came up and offered us a ride. She had just dropped off someone through the Ground Angels program. On the ride to our hotel, she told us about the program and suggested that we attempt to get a ride back to the airport on Friday, and if nothing else contact you all earlier the next time that we fly in for an appointment.
I am attaching my information, but understand that it is late and there is a good chance that transportation may not be available on such short notice.

To Whom it May Concern,
I was privileged recently to be transported by the “ground angels of Houston”.
This was a heartwarming experience and eased the stress at this difficult time. I was diagnosed with a large melanoma on my face. This had to be removed and plastic surgery replaced. This was the scariest time of my life!
With the “angel flight & ground angels service” my trip was worry free!
Thank you for your generosity and your caring and sharing!
With warm Regards

Dear Houston Ground Angels
We cannot thank you enough for your support, compassion and care you provided to our son, Giles Hofacer, Jr. while he was in Texas.
Your gracious assistance made his difficult journey easier to face. His notes to us and the comments made by other family who were with him were full of grateful comments to all of your staffs unselfish efforts to go the extra mile.
It is with our utmost thanks as his parents that we send our total appreciation for you care of our son.
With Great Gratitude,
Giles & Lola Hofacer

"Please tell everyone that's a part of Houston Ground Angels, especially all the volunteers, drivers, etc., Kathy and Steve thank you sooooo much. We wish we could give you a big hug and apple pie!!!"
Love, Kathy (Buffington)

To All Ground Angels,
Recently I spoke with Brenda Stroud, the wife of patient Ted Stroud. Ted passed away a few months ago and Brenda asked me to tell all Ground Angels who transported them how very much they appreciated your help while they were traveling to and from MDA. I do not have an exact list of the GAs who transported Ted and Brenda so I am sending this to everyone in hopes that those particular Ground Angels will see it.
Once again, thank you for all that you do to help our patients and their families.

I am requesting transportation direct to the hotel on Sunday afternoon since my appointment at MD Anderson is early Monday morning.
Thanks in advance for the assist.

I received your request and will post it on our web site. After a volunteer has "taken" your mission he/she will call you to discuss the details.
Thanks for all the info!

Thank you so much for letting me know the status of my request!
, what a blessing this is for me and for anyone who is able to enjoy such a wonderful heartfelt experience.
God bless and take care,

My husband and I are vary thankful for the transportation you provided when we came to Houston on 8/12/2010. Our "Angel" driver was excellent in caring and making sure we were taken care of.
Keep up the good work!
Erica and Matthew Miller

Please accept a vary belated thank you for all that you and the Houston Ground Angels have done for me. I can't tell you how much I appreciate what you all do. Please accept my donation as a token of thanks and appreciation. I am currently in a clinical trial in Philadelphia and will soon find out if it is working. I have my fingers crossed and am saying prayers for good results. If I head back to MDA I will certainly give you a call.
Many Thanks
Debbie Jones

From Chance Harley Cole's Journal
Chance and I are waiting for a "Houston Ground Angel" to give us a ride to Hobby Airport. The Houston Ground Angels is a wonderful group of volunteers who take patients to and from the airports and hospitals. They have saved us a tremendous amount of money in terms of cab fare.
Thank you Houston Ground Angels!
