Livonia Fire Department Photograph via Facebook Earlier this month, signs thanking members of the Livonia Fire Department were placed outside the facility on South Livonia Road, Livonia. The signs were one of many supportive gestures that have been made toward first responders, medical workers and other essential workers.

These past few weeks have brought our communities concern, anxiety, and hardship. Yet in the midst of it, I have seen much love and kindness being spread around.

I want to thank local businesses, community groups, county boards, and individuals who have reached out to essential workers during this time to encourage us. Thank you for the meals, cards, yard signs, gifts, and much more that you have given to support and encourage me and my coworkers.

As a healthcare worker, it has been my privilege to serve the families in our communities as I care for their elderly loved ones during this uncertain time.

May the Lord bless you all with the peace that passes all understanding, which comes through Jesus Christ.
