Wood family thanks community for help after son's accident

Kristy and I want to extend a very heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped us through the trying time of our son Seth's awful accident.

Everyone in our immediate family were just overcome with gratitude for the caring and support offered from all over the country; this is the Internet at its best, and special thanks to the Noll family for getting that ball rolling. We are so proud to be part of this community.

Seth is at his home now recovering from his injuries and has started his physical therapy. It seems he may not have permanent damage from the accident, and we are hopeful for his full recovery.

There are a couple thoughts we'd like to leave with everyone. We believe Seth may have been killed or permanently brain damaged had he not been wearing his bicycle helmet when he was run over. He also did not have access to a proper bike path to commute to his workplace.

Please, everyone: Wear a bike helmet when out riding your bikes and please support your community's efforts, wherever you live, to have access to well planned and properly maintained bike paths.

Our deepest thanks to everyone's support once again. With our love and appreciation: Tim, Kristy, Alison, Seth, Ariel, Mark and Logan Wood.
