Last night Pam & I joined Jerry & Carol Jamieson at the Warren Co. SC installation dinner.  We were introduced to one of “OUR” children who recently was at the Cincinnati Burns Hospital.    The McGuire’s were in Tennessee last Labor Day weekend when the boat they were on exploded.    Guy and his father Kevin were both burned.  The hospital that was treating them there was going to send them to different hospitals miles apart. 
Jerry (who is on the Board of Governors at Cincinnati) received a call to see if Antioch would pay for the transport of Guy to Cincinnati.  ABSOLUTELY was Jerry’s answer.   Along with that his father was also transported to Cincinnati’s University Hospital next door.  Guy’s mother Ashley never left his side.   Today Guy and Kevin are doing great!   Jerry got to finally meet the family he helped out last year.  We received a tearful THANK YOU from all the family members and there wasn’t a dry eye from any of us who were very proud and it reminds us……. WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO!!
