Thank you, Mr. Corey, and God Bless you and your family. Also, thank heavens this world has such caring people as the ones who made the flight possible for him. Thank you for your kindness and all the work involved. Sometimes I start to loss faith in mankind and then I read something like this and realize people in this country are like no other. We are basically a very caring society.

Its nice to be able to read about someone doing good and bringing a smile to someone for a change, instead of bringing hate and misery. Thank you Mr. Francis for giving Mr. Corey the chance to soar again.
