My Mom said recently, "Never in a million years did we ever dream something like this would be held, or needed for us. From what my dear friends and church members (the organizers) have told me, the idea came about when we were in the hospital and so many people who know Ernie felt helpless and wanted to do something. Ideas were thrown around and before they knew it food had been donated, a place was secured, and numerous auction items were pouring in. As we look at the scope of it now, we are completely blown away."
Thank you to everyone who is involved in the planning of this event. We are incredibly humbled and grateful. "Thank you" will never be sufficient for what you have done. We so appreciate your willingness to STAND IN THE GAP with our family during this difficult time.
