I want to take a moment to thank all of you. Our family has been truly overwhelmed by the love and kindness of our community. From the ambulance service sending flowers, the nurse who came to the viewing, the anesthesiologist telling us he saw his own children there on the operating table and total strangers who came across a link on the internet who felt moved to comment, pray and offer support.
We’ve been asked over and over what we need, but we truly are blessed to not have any physical needs. My dad and brother fixed the plumbing. A man from our church came out and fixed the chimney. The funeral home donated its services. The newspaper donated the space in the paper. My husband’s work took care of the fact he left without contacting a supervisor and is giving him the time he needs to be home during this time.
I cannot begin to recount the kindnesses shown us. For those of you who feel moved to give, please consider donating to Tiny Hands International, a ministry working in Asia to rescue children from poverty and sex-trafficking. It would mean a great deal to us if some of the overflowing generosity we have been shown could benefit someone who has true physical needs.
