HAPPENINGS
THANK YOU
On March 23, fire destroyed everything we had. The one thing it couldn’t destroy was love. The love we have for each other and the lover from our community. Rather give than take, that’s always been our way. Now we have learned to accept with grateful hearts the generosity of so many near and far. To name you all would take us days and pages, so we offer a general thank you. Thank you. Those words will never be enough to describe what we feel. We were taken in, fed and clothed. We were hugged and kissed. We were cushioned by so many against the harsh blow life dealt us. This community it truly a testament to small town loyalty. From our close friends, our church family, our fire department, our school, local businesses, and even those who barely know us. Everyone rallied round to help and to heal. Thank you. We promise you all this. No good deed goes unreturned. We will repay the love and loyalty. Proudly giving back to the town and townsfolk we will forever hold dear to our hearts. So again, thank you. God bless and keep you all. Sincerely, Chris, Marissa, Ben Granby & our critters too. g51
