We just heard from David Russell with The Bluegrass Journal, who shared a note he had received from Ernie Thacker. Regular readers of Bluegrass Today have surely noted that Ernie was seriously injured in an auto accident back in April, and remains hospitalized even now.
It’s just a brief note, which was sent by Ernie’s family to his many friends and fans who have offered support during his recovery.
“I would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers. I am still in ICU, but I am doing better. I can’t talk because I have a trach tube. I’m paralyzed from the waist down but am hoping rehab will help me get back on my feet. It overwhelms me the fans and friends I have, words just can’t describe. I love you all more than you will ever know.”
