Hunt thanks L-83, Brotherhood

We would like to thank Local 83 and all the Boilermakers for their kindness during these trying times. This is a long, rough road [for Dale Hunt and his family, due to his serious illness], and if not for the union, I don’t know where we would be. Even during a difficult economy, the Brotherhood still stands strong and united. We are so thankful for the union and all its benefits. So if anyone ever gets to wondering if it’s all worth it, trust me, it is — and your brothers have got your back.

All of your cards and heartfelt prayers mean so much to our family.
