Words cannot express the gratitude that we feel for the thoughts, prayers, donations, and acts of kidness that have touched our lives over the last few months. We have been deeply moved by the generosity of friends, family, and strangers alike. It is overwhelming the way people have reached out to make this difficult time a little easier for us. Because of the number of people who have made donations of time and money it is impossible to thank everyone personally, but please know that even the smallest gestures of kindness have been greatly appreciated. We do want to thank Darlene Rethman, Peggy Stover,Julie Pickett, Jill Darling, Tammy Brock, and everyone else that helped to make the silent auctions such a big success. We thank Bob and Brenda Stover of Lake Cozydale Campground and the American Legion Hall Halker-Flege Post # 69 for donating the sites for the silent auctions, and Applebees for donating the food. We want to say a special thank you to the staff, parents, and children of Heritage Presbyterian Preschool for their support and donations. Thanks to Chris Champ and State Farm Insurance for their generous donations, and Christy VanValkenburgh for Lauren's bedroom makeover. Last but certainly not least we thank the many individuals and churches across the nation that have been praying for us. We ask that you please continue to remember us in your prayers.
