From Farmmom, via OldNFO:
I have struggled for a couple of months now on how to say thank you to all the folks that have helped my family. Every time I sit down to try to write, I end up not being able to see the page. Darn Colorado dust. This morning I sat down and made myself soldier through, and I hope I can express the unending gratitude I feel without ending up blubbering like an idiot.
In this day and age it’s surprising to find a few people that will go out of their way to help someone else… To say the least I’m astounded for this many people to help someone that most of them don’t even know. It reminds me that there are still good people out there, and that have an amazing amount of compassion for their fellow man. You folks are the best of the best. I’m humbled to know some of you and would welcome meeting the rest, because folks like you make life better just for knowing you.
Because of you and your compassion, Steve and Andi are able to deal with this and still be able to give their sons a decent Christmas. It won’t be lavish but it will be there.
Andi is doing extremely well and she is able to work. Slower than she used to, but her amazing creative talent is still there and she is able to express it. She has come a long way, with a ways to go yet; but she is determined and she WILL overcome this. I am proud to call her daughter. She is a wonderful wife and mother, and I couldn’t ask for more.
Once again, thank you to all you kind folks. My heart is full to bursting for what you have done for my family. I can never express how much we appreciate you.
God Bless You and I hope you have the merriest Christmas you’ve ever had.
I’ll just add a heartfelt “Thank You” to everyone who donated, and to all who added the family to your thoughts and prayers. Every little bit helps, I’m firmly convinced.
