Thank You From the Keenan & Martin Families

On behalf of Billy, Noreen, Patrick & Kieran, as well as the entire Keenan and Martin families, we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all of you for your unbelievable outpouring of support and love.

Thousands of you came out Mineola, Yonkers and Rockland this weekend for #KeenanStrong. Thousands more bought raffle tickets or made donations.  From meeting so many of you over the last week and hearing your stories, everyone spoke of a personal tie to Billy and our families.  You told us how you were touched by him at some point, or were compelled by compassion for his challenge.  What a tribute you all made to a great man.  You all have made a profound positive impact on the lives of Billy and his family.  Our families are forever grateful.

And your outpouring continues with donations and CD sales pouring in even as we write this.   Don't stop... every dollar still counts, and the CD is delightful. We hope you enjoy hearing Billy sing on it as much as we are.

So many companies, organizations, bands & musicians came forward to support and sponsor #KeenanStrong with cash, donations, materials, promotion, services, talent and time.  Hundreds of you volunteered countless hours of your personal time to make these events run perfectly.   We are hearing story after story of your graciousness, professionalism, kindness, smiles and love.  You are all a perfect reflection of Billy Keenan.

And we cannot thank the #KeenanStrong committee members enough for making this all happen.   You put together a world-class large-scale event and charity program in record time.  You never said no.  You  fought through adversity time and time again.   We started meeting in the fall with tears, worry and shock after Billy's accident.   But our journey together culminated in more tears Sunday afternoon; this time tears of joy for Billy as he spoke of the next part of his life and contributing again.   The dream of #KeenanStrong and this weekend came true because of your love and hard work.  None of this would have been possible without you.  

Billy is on a hard road back and improving every day.  Know that that your incredible support and love will lift him up for years to come.   But most of all remember what he said to us all on Sunday, “Please, please keep the prayers coming, they are being answered.”   You are why they are being answered.   

God bless you all. Thank you!
