Letter: Family is grateful for county volunteers, support
Cookie, still missing, is a Corgi mix.
The Wilson County News has been incredibly supportive and compassionate regarding our search for Cookie, our missing Corgi mix. They did a fabulous job designing her lost ad and continue to monitor it. Ashley wrote a lovely article profiling Cookie and our family and we are deeply thankful.
Thanks to Weston Signs in Floresville for making the reward signs. They were quite generous with their time to squeeze in our order quickly over a weekend and were also very compassionate.
We know Wilson County is a volunteer community and supports one another in times of need. We continue to have strangers call just for an update and to let us know they are praying for Cookie and for us and they continue to look for her. All of the outpouring of support has been overwhelming, very touching, and a source of great strength.
We also want to thank the great ladies of Las Lomas K9 Rescue and the Wilson County Spay/Neuter Group along with our friends in Oak Hollow Estates. All of these people and others have participated in searches, distributed flyers, visited local veterinarian offices, followed up on calls, etc. Without their support, we would not have been able to search every lead thoroughly.
A special shout out to Andrea Best, who provides daily encouragement and has worked as tirelessly as we have to do everything in our power to bring our missing family member home.
We realize we may never get our Cookie back, but we have learned we can count on our friends and neighbors in Wilson County and are blessed to have them.
DEANA PHILLIPS and TOM GILMAN
