Dear Editor:

My husband and I wanted to share our deepest gratitude with Calhoun County’s emergency responders for their incredible and immediate response early in the morning of May 5, 2018. We were awakened by CCSO Deputy Duqualis Farrow at 3 a.m. by loud shouts and beating on the side door of our home. “Your home is on fire, and you need to get out.” We were sleeping nearby in our camping trailer, due to our home being remodeled (and repaired from Harvey damage). Thank you, Deputy Farrow, for your keen observation that night, quick reaction to wake us and report the fire. We had barely stepped out of the camper before our home was surrounded by the flashing lights of multiple emergency fire response vehicles, responders, and volunteers. We want to extend our most sincere thanks to all these men and women as well. This includes the Port Lavaca Fire Department and Volunteers, Magnolia Beach VFD, Seadrift VFD and Six Mile VFD as well. We know there are many others who were part of this tremendous emergency response that we may not have seen, and we thank you as well.

We are most grateful to the Lord for not only sparing our lives, but also for the providence of such a strong, caring, and competent team of first responders that serve our community. We are very proud to call Calhoun County our home. May God continue to bless each one of you.


Kenny and Rosy Weaver
