Letter: Community proves how wonderful it is

By on April 1, 2010

Twenty years ago, when I married and moved to Elburn, I knew I had found a special community—a great place to raise a family.

One year ago, I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Since January, it seems I’ve spent more time in Loyola Hospital than at home.

The most wonderful thing is at no time have I ever had to worry about the well-being of my children. The community once again has stepped up to help a family in need. Someone is always there to make sure my girls have a ride to or from practice. Some donated their time to ride with Megan so she got enough hours to get her license—congrats Megan.

Thank you to the wonderful staff at John Stewart Elementary for providing meals for the last two months. Thank you to Elburn Express Baseball/Softball for all the ways in which you have supported us. And thank you to all the families too countless to mention, whether you sent cards of well wishes, made donations, dropped off a meal, took care of my children, stopped by to visit, or remembered us in your prayers.

We thank you for your kindness, and it means more to us than you will ever know.
