We have gotten this note from Les Gwyn-Williams, the owner of Terry’s Drugs:

On Thursday, February 10, the path of my life changed quicker than I could imagine. I survived a terrible plane accident, where I was alone and lived to tell. There was only one seat on that plane that day and I was in it. Without going into detail, my injuries were thankfully limited  to my extremities. And now that I have a chance to think about it, I want to say thank you to all my family, friends and supporters, who prayed for me and continue to pray for me through this ordeal.

Rehabilitation will take longer than I imagined and I do not expect  to be walking the streets of Verona any time soon. Hopefully by summer I’ll be back to thank everyone in person.

If you want to send a message of support to Les during his recovery, there is a notebook at Terry’s that you can use. It is brought to Les in the hospital every evening and it has been lifting his spirits tremendously.
