You are the family that constantly amazes us with its generosity and support. When it came time to get our daughter some reliable transportation for college, there you were, asking how you could help. Please know that your financial contributions are greatly appreciated and often the difference in making another opportunity happen for our kids. You should also know that the most valuable support you have given them is your time. When they look out at the audience and see our whole family sitting together for one of their concerts or cheering for them at a sporting event, it lets them know they are loved by many people. We don't say it enough because we're often too busy folding our chairs and trying to figure out the best route out of the parking lot, but, honestly, we do thank you and consider you charter members of our little village.
