Thank you so very much for everything you have done. We cannot wait to share pictures of the amazing night you blessed us with yesterday, and thank you also to the beautiful families and teachers at Johnson School who raised so much money for Oliver through their Family Fun Night. You have filled our hearts to the brim. It is difficult to put into words how incredibly loved you made us feel last night and how immensely grateful we are for all of your support, it has brought us to tears. For months we've felt isolated, suffering in silence as we lose our son to a disease no one has even heard of, but last night you reminded us that we are not alone, not at all. We are humbled to be surrounded by such incredible, caring families.
If you have any pictures of the track meet or from the dinner last night, please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Between the sheer number of people in attendance, the countless hugs and warm smiles, the raffle baskets, everything, it took my breath away and I didn't take a single picture. Especially if you took any photos of those FANTASTIC raffle baskets. They were beyond anything I could have dreamed of! So if you have photos please send them my way and I can post them for the world to see. The world should know how amazing you are. Wow, we are still just in awe of everything.
Here is a link to the Bethel Public Schools Newsletter and Superintendent's News where he discusses how the community has really pulled together to support Oliver and our family. We are forever grateful.
And here are a few pictures that Chris' sister took:
