    I just want to say that my husband and I are very thankful for all the SAR volunteers of Fremont County, the private helicopter pilot from Belgrade, Montana, and all of our friends and family that assisted in getting us safely home. You are all truly amazing people and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. No words will ever be able to describe how grateful & thankful we are for all of you amazing people. I would really like to let everyone know that if it wasn’t for Katie Ellsworth Foster (my husband’s sister) this search would not have turned out as well as it did!!! She is truly a LIFESAVER!!! Never take life for granted, you never know when that day is going to be your last. THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!!
