To the editor:

Hello, my name is Carl Johanson. I am a firefighter who is employed with Sanibel Fire and Rescue District.

On Jan. 24, 2016, I was involved in a motor vehicle accident, which left me severely injured. I have had several surgeries and I am on the road to recovery. I am looking forward to getting back to work in the future.

I wanted to take the time to personally “Thank” all of the great residents of Sanibel and the people of Lee County that expressed their support and made financial donations to help me.

I cannot tell you all, how deeply touched and humbled I am. Each and every one of you have made a difference in my life and for that I am eternally grateful.

My recovery is coming along and I really believe that all of you have helped me tremendously to achieve this. I still have a ways to go, but I go with a heart full of joy from all the compassion and continued support, you have given me.

On behalf of my family, myself and my department, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

God Bless

Carl Johanson
