To the editor: 

Happy New Year to our amazing Cordova family.  

Danny and I wanted to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for all the love and support we felt from you while we were in Cordova.  

Thank you also for being so sweet to my sister, Bernadine and her husband Reed – and of course for being so good to Jude and Caleb. 

It’s so comforting to know that no matter how busy or discouraging life gets, there’s still this beautiful place nestled in Alaska with an incredible community that we can escape to. 

Though we were heartbroken that our business venture didn’t work out, we have left with no regrets because our lives have been touched and incredibly enriched by the countless friendships, sincere goodness and generosity, the endless creativity, and the breathtaking surroundings there in Cordova. 


Thank you so much for everything! We love you all and can’t wait to come back for more adventures and wonderful company. 

Love, Dan and Belinda Govatos
