The benefit

I can't describe how loved we felt from those who came to the benefit. We were hugged and loved on by so many friends and family. Some came from far away and some we had just lost touch with. We are still shaking our heads in amazement. Steve asked me on the way home, "What just happened in there"?

We have so many to thank for their hard work at putting this together. My sister Becky and dear friend Kris were relentless in making sure there were plenty of baskets, auction items and baked goods. Now they move on to a huge benefit yard sale happening the 6th, 7th and 8th of September. All this for us. I don't know how to show my gratitude.

Thanks to all the behind the scene people who not only worked a long time at the benefit but many days prior in assisting. It was a huge success and we love each and every one of you.

We go on now with a bit less worry financially and a true feeling of not being alone on this journey.

  1. I had a great time at the benefit...the crowd was amazing, I never saw so many people. I was so excited to win the golf clubs. I had never won anything before. Was even more excited to give them to my husband when I got home. Then the excited feeling all weekend as he told his friends what his wife had won for him. You two are extrodinary people, and it was a blessing to attend and help. I had bought 1 ticket when I arrived for the golf clubs. Then about 8:00 I felt a nudging to buy 1 more ticket. It was the ticket that won. Awesome is all I can say!
