Thank you from the Kunz family

Jon Jonson Photo/Gila Valley Central: Andrew Kunz, 11, felt well enough to visit Sodalicious on Monday during its fundraiser for him. The company donated 10 percent of its sales of the day to help with medical expenses relating to Andrew being stung more than 400 times by "killer" bees just a week prior.

Dear Editor:

As a family, we want to thank the entire Gila Valley for the love and support we received while our grandson, Andrew Kunz, is recovering from the bee attack Feb. 20, 2017. The sheer number of prayers on our behalf were incredible and have carried us through a tremendously difficult time.

We are grateful to Sodalicious for the fundraiser they held on our behalf. It was so gratifying to see people who truly care about the children of our community show up to support us.

We have always thought our community was an amazing place, but we are more convinced than ever! We are honored to be a part of all of you, and you are permanently a part of our hearts.


Petrea Kunz and family
