Nearly the entire staff of Dawgman.com has been in the Mexican Gulf during the tragic events that transpired during the past week. We became aware of the news as it was aired on CNN and felt helpless in not being able to offer a personal acknowledgement of these horrific events.
We, the staff of Dawgman.com, would like to take the opportunity now, to offer our heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of the victims that lost their lives in New York City, Washington DC, Pittsburgh, and Cozumel.
While traveling in the Mexican Gulf this week, we had the opportunity to meet up with the Holland American cruise ship that carried the other Husky fans. We met up with lots of them on the Island of Cozumel on the very day that claimed the lives of the 16 Husky fans that were lost while on an excursion flight to the Mayan ruins of Chichén Itzá, Mexico. None of us knew at the time what had occurred and most of us only became aware on the following morning when we were met with frantic communications from our own families trying to learn if we were safe.
Although the plane crash victims were not personal acquaintences of ours, their names were known to us, as visitors on this site, and as members of the Husky family.
It's difficult to express the sorrow we feel for all of the people who are suffering today on this day of rememberance, but we hope that the families and friends that were personally impacted by the tragedies of the past week will find the strength and faith they need in these difficult times.
David Samek, Monika Samek, Kim Grinolds, Chris Fetters, and Joe Kaiser.
