To the editor:
The Pentecost family is very grateful and overwhelmed by the outpouring of support by family, friends and the community. Charles is recovering in Tampa General still in intensive care remaining very optimistic. After numerous surgeries, his right arm just above his elbow was saved. We have set up a benefit trust for Charles at Riverside Bank of the Gulf Coast.
