Botsford News Release
Farmington Hills, Mich. (April 18, 2012)---The Cipriano and Trahan families wish to express our heartfelt appreciation for the community of support, love and prayers that have been so present in our lives these past two days. We are a large family and are gathering from all over the country to be here to support Rose and Salvatore. As we work to cope with the reality that in an instant changed all of our lives, we are grateful for the compassion and competence that we have experienced in working with the Farmington Hills Police Department. Botsford Hospital has provided excellent medical care for our family, kept us informed and has answered any and all of our questions.
At this time while we recognize the concern of the public, we ask that you recognize and respect our need for privacy.
Updates will be managed through the Community Relations Department of Botsford Hospital. We will be in contact with them on a regular basis and have requested that they manage all inquiries.
Our family members continue to be in critical condition. We continue to pray for their recovery and welcome your thoughts and prayers as well. Thank you.
