Dear Ms. Thompson: My wife and I had the great pleasure of attending the Burn Camp this past month sponsored by the OSU Burn Clinic. It was a wonderful experience – not only us your facility beautiful and filled with many outstanding recreational opportunities for families of all ages, the food was excellent and the surroundings peaceful and beautiful.
However, what made the weekend so memorable was the people involved, including your wonderful staff. While each of the individuals with whom we came in contact were friendly, enthusiastic and clearly committed to giving their talents and skills to helping others, we particularly want to single out Jack Murphy. He was wonderfully happy and an inspiration to all of us – he made the weekend very memorable.
Thank you for a great experience. We look forward to our return.
