A Million Thanks

Saturday was amazing. More than we ever expected, and beyond what we could have imagined. Our amazing friends put on a fundraiser for Jackson and held it on Saturday. They called this event "For Jack's Sake". I knew that they had been working hard for a long time on it, but I never could have imagined that it would have turned out so incredible.

This event was overwhelming for us, and extremely humbling. We felt so much love and compassion being surrounded by the people in our community. I never could have guessed how many people would show up to support Jackson. I don't think Jackson still understands how lucky he is to have so many people cheering for him.

Thank you. I feel like those words come out of my mouth a lot, but still they can never can be enough. Thank you. Those words seem so inadequate to express the overwhelming gratitude that we as a family feel for all of your love and support. Thank you. I don't know lots of you that came on Saturday to support our boy and I don't have different words to express how grateful we are. Thank you for coming. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to come spend an evening with us. Thank you for loving our family. Thank you for caring about our son. Thank you for your support, and your hugs, and your kindness and your generosity and your prayers.

Thank you. From the bottom of our hearts.

  2. My kids were so excited Jackson was there. They pray for him every night. We love you guys.


Thank you for taking time to comment. I read each and every comment to Jackson and they brighten his spirits. He loves that you are supporting him through reading his blog.
