To the wonderful people of Grand Cayman: My written and spoken words are not adequate to thank all those in Grand Cayman for their prayers, love, support and faith during these days since 9 p.m. on April 6. The Christian love and prayers for my son Harrison, me and our family have carried us through this tragedy. Harrison remains in critical condition in a Miami hospital and is stable. We are living in the present of each day.
I can never personally thank each of you who have helped in ways I am not aware or may never know, who prayed and shared the need for prayer throughout the island and world. All our prayers are continuing to lift Harrison for God’s healing. I cannot mention everyone, but there are those I must note here: Dr. James Akinwunmi; the Staff and nurses at George Town Hospital, especially Riley; Lana Mae Smith, Velma Hewitt, Lucille (LuLu), Tevita and Rosemarie Navuki, O’Neil Miller and Angela Miller, Christine and Ken Dobeare; the Marriott hotel staff, especially Nicholas; the U.S. Consular Agency and the Department of Tourism.
I pray that good will come of this tragedy and horrific event. We still do not know all the details of the accident. I hope that as a result of the investigation into this accident, all the circumstances will be carefully considered by the authorities with a view to taking such steps as may be necessary to improve the safety of pedestrians in the area.
If anyone was there that evening and took video or pictures of what was happening after Harrison was hit, I would appreciate you sharing them. The doctors have noted that Harrison’s reaction in the minutes after the accident may help in their medical treatment.

I look forward to the day that Harrison, brother Leighton, sister Caroline and I return to Grand Cayman so Harrison can meet everyone that entered his life that night and will forever be a part of his life story.
