Letter: Thanks from the Delano family
We’d like to express our sincere gratitude for all the community support since the passing of Steve Delano. We had no idea of the number of lives Steve had impacted in his short time. We are truly amazed at the number of people we’ve spoken with since the accident on May 8. The people who have made calls, dropped off food and flowers have simply been unbelievable. We appreciate all the love and support from our families, friends, community and others we simply don’t even know who have expressed their sympathy.
To those of you who have donated to Project Graduation Class of 2010, we recently found out that the money would go toward the Class of 2011 since this year is already paid in full. So we would like to put the money towards a tree and possibly a bench in Memorial Park. We’ve also made a purchase for a keepsake for the Class of 2010. Thank you, too, to those of you who have contributed to the Scarborough Fire Department and The New England Donor Bank on Steve’s behalf.
We’d like to give a special thank you to Justin Michaud, Dick Michaud, Mrs. Patricia Conant, Dwayne Hopkins, Nancy McAdams and all the ladies from Portland High School, the Scarborough Hannaford, Scarborough Fire Department Engine 7, St. Maximillian Church and the Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital for all you’ve done to help.
Also, we’d like to thank everyone for the continued support and ongoing love and support for one of Steve’s best friends, Kevin Grondin and his family.
Thank you all for helping us celebrate the life of our “country boy,” Steven Michael Delano.
Cindy, Mark and Scott Delano
