I would like to share this wonderful note with everyone. It is from Holleah Thomson’s mom. She reached out for help and she got it, which she tells you about in her note below. I wanted you all to know that not only was there a happy ending, but also for you to know how much your sharing MP flyers and stories really does helps families.
“Dear Facebook friends,
I cannot accurately express my gratitude to each and every one of you. Because of people all over the country, I was able to bring Holleah home safely. Holleah’s picture was shared in all 50 states, including Hawaii and Alaska, and as far away as Denmark, the UK, and South America. With close to 40,000 shares from my page alone, I was overwhelmed and incredibly touched by the compassion of complete and total strangers. I wish I could thank you all personally by name, but that is obviously not possible.
There are a small group of close friends- you know who you are- for which I am so very thankful. These friends and family stood by me, helped me maintain my sanity (then, and now), and realized when I needed to step back and just breath. To those angels in my life, I say thank you, and I love you.To the Johnson County Sheriffs Department- thank you all for your hard work. I cannot imagine the number of phone calls and tips you must have handled in the nearly 36 hours my daughter was gone. You knocked on doors and followed leads, good and bad. You did your best to keep me informed, and returned my calls to you, which was a great comfort. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Specifically, I send a huge thanks and big hug to Dennis Crowley, Brenda Paradise, Marisa Rios-Texas, CFSI Texas for Missing Children, Jerrie Dean with Missing Persons of America, and I’m sure many others I’m leaving out. Please understand, no slight intended, it just goes to show how many agencies and organizations reached out to help.
Whether you took 30 seconds to share our post and say a prayer, or took the time to leave a comment of support, or a moment to send a personal message with helpful information, you did your part, and you have my gratitude. Thank you, and God bless.
Friends, please share this with others that you know who helped with finding my daughter. I want everyone to know their efforts, big and small, never went unnoticed.”
