Family thanks locals for help

Local residents thank the community for its support after a fire.

Dear editor,

On behalf of Junelyn, my daughters and myself, I feel compelled to thank all those who went out of their way to lend a helping hand in our time of crisis.

Words cannot express enough our appreciation for the help we received. To the volunteers who acted swiftly and professionally to put out our house fire; to the generosity of those who provided us food, clothing, bedding, a roof over our heads and much-needed funds, we thank you.

You have touched our hearts. It was through the selfless acts of all who have helped us that we felt the true meaning of community.

As I write this note from the home of a person I only just met, yet who trusts my family and me fully in her home, we are truly blessed.

Thank you again, good Samaritans. Your benevolence has turned the page on this family’s adversity. Yours is our inspiration, the catalyst we will use to rebuild.

In the future we will have many challenges to face. Greater will be the reward of knowing we overcame these trials in such an awesome community. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Thank you, everyone.

Doug Lissey
