A note from The Purcell Family:
"Feelings of joy wash over us and clean away the dirt of despair, if only for a day ... it feels a thousand years. Gratitude and blessings go out to the Cazenovia community (far and wide), to special friends, family, neighbors and co-workers, to those invisible in the effort, to those who made it happen and to everyone in between."
