To the Editor: Titus family appreciates community’s support

Our family would like to express our heartfelt thanks to so many people for making our benefit garage
sale a great success.
To our neighbors who were so understanding and supportive during the sale, we say thanks. To all the
family, friends and neighbors who volunteered their time and energy to help us pull this off. We would
never have been able to accomplish this without you. To the family and friends who kept us going with
food and drinks. It was greatly appreciated and oh so delicious. To everyone who donated items for us to
sell. And that is an awful lot of you. We will always be grateful for your generosity. To all the
friends and strangers who supported our cause by visiting the sale and purchasing items or offering
donations. Your kind words of support and generosity make us proud to call BG home.
And finally to Deb Rogers and the Sentinel-Tribune for the wonderful article of June 4. We can only hope
that Ian’s story can help promote the cause of autism awareness not only in our community, but in all of
society.
We are very blessed to live in a community where a strong support system is in place.
A big salute needs to go out to those individuals and organizations that make a big difference in the
lives of special needs kids like Ian. Thanks to the Help Me Grow program, Wood Lane, Wood County Health
Department and the Wood County Hospital Rehab staff for their early intervention programs. Without their
encouragement, guidance and support, who knows where we would be. Also, thanks to the Bowling Green City
Schools for their assistance in steering us in the right direction. And finally a special thanks to the
St. Vincent’s Mercy Children’s CHIP program and their wonderful staff.
Because of your efforts, we are excited, encouraged and proud of the progress that our son is making.
Thanks Bowling Green for helping us give Ian the opportunity to grow and succeed.
Our family will be forever grateful for your kindness.
The Titus Family
Bowling Green
