On Thanksgiving Day in far-off Minnesota, watching the gently falling snow, George and Sally Prill gave thanks for their last 10 years they were lucky enough to spend in Galveston.

Thanks for the friends and associates with whom they worked, laughed and, occasionally, cried. Thanks for Lyda Ann Thomas, Danny Weber and the Galveston City Council that proclaimed April 22, 2010, to be George and Sally Prill Day. An honor not deserved, but appreciated.

Thanks for Adler Circle — what a great neighborhood! Birthplace of Tilman Fertitta. Made greater by the purchase of our house by J.D. and Barbara Roberts; she is about to become the judge in County Court 2. The Roberts are lucky to have founding residents, Bob and Patsy Murray, next door.
