Dear Editor,

It is certainly through tearful eyes that I contemplate the utmost gratitude I have for our beautiful community and the way that we can pull together and lift one another up.

I’m so grateful for all the kind words, support and generosity that has been shown to me and my family during this trying time of need in our lives. I promise you one thing: It will never be forgotten. You have all taught me the life lesson of charity. Thank you to Lop’s Pop Stop, all my friends, family, loved ones and those who just want to help. I can’t express our appreciation enough.

Love you all. Thank you!
