I want to give a shout out to my friend Jackie. She is a frontline essential worker at an Alzheimer's and dementia facility.

The essential workers are the ones getting the rest of us through this time. Thank you so much, I love you. If you know an essential worker, buy them lunch. Jackie, your next one's on me!

I'd like to give a shout-out to my sister. She works at Chick-Fil-A, and she just works really hard. I think she deserves some thanks and a shout-out, because she's balancing that with her last year in High School. So she's really working hard, and I'm proud of her for that.

Thanks to you and all essential employees for your bravery and the sacrifices you make, to ensure we're all taken care of. We truly appreciate you.

I want to salute ALL of my fellow Crouse coworkers- specifically in surgical recovery and intensive care. They have all worked tirelessly to provide the best care and compassion to CNY. They are all risking their own health every day and giving 100% of themselves to better the community.
