Card of thanks

Thanks to all who supported the benefit that was held at First English Lutheran Church.  It was overwhelming to see the large turnout of support from our community, friends, and family. Thanks to all who organized and worked so hard to make it a success. A big thank you to Thrivent and Cenex Harvest States for your generous contribution to the benefit. We also want to offer a huge thank you to the Big Stone County Cancer Support Group for the generous financial help with gas cards and living expenses. It has been very much appreciated since we have made several trips to Rochester and have had to live there in the short term during treatment. We feel so blessed to live in a town that comes together during challenging times. I have one more series of chemo treatments in December and will have a bone marrow transplant in January. Thanks for all the kind words, cards, meals, financial support, thoughts, and prayers. We have felt your prayers and truly appreciate all that you have done for our entire family.


Blessings to you all,

I’d like to thank everyone for all of your support in the loss of my son Andy whether by a card or just seeing me locally, it means so much to me.

Thank you to the doctors, nurses and everyone who assisted with our emergency on Sunday morning, and also during Glenora’s hospital stay. It is comforting indeed to know that we have such competent caring personnel at our disposal. Thanks also for all the cards, food, visits, and prayers. With special thanks to Pastor O’Neil for his daily visits.

Merry Christmas to all
