To the Editor:

I would like to thank Dr. Alan Braverman, Dr. Peter Anderson, along with the entire staff -- including the physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, social services, admissions, housekeeping and dietary departments -- at Village Crest Center for Health & Rehabilitation in New Milford for all the time you took to care for me.

I appreciated the time you took for a special smile, kind and sensitive words and your support during my recovery.

I want you to know how deeply I appreciated all you do each day.
