FORT MYERS, Fla. - Congressman Trey Radel's wife Amy has released a statement thanking the public for their support.
"The outpouring of support from the community has been overwhelming.
Your positive, uplifting encouragement is helping us get through this difficult time.
While this has been heart-breaking, I am proud to watch my husband, Trey, get the help he needs.
When we married, we took vows to remain together in good times and bad, in sickness and health. I know that brighter days are ahead for my husband, our family and our beloved home of Southwest Florida.
I ask you to please respect my privacy as we try to heal as a family, most especially for our 2-year old".
