My family and I would like to thank everyone that came out to Center Grove Community Center on March 30, 2012 and made the benefit for me a huge success! We could not have done it without each and everyone of you. We don’t even know how and where to start to thank each individual. I wouldn’t want to leave anyone out. If I, my family or someone else hasn’t thanked you for helping, I am now. Thank you to everyone! Over the last three months, help from people has poured in, from the start to the end of the late night hours that night. No matter how little you may  have thought your help was, it did not go unnoticed. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts and God Bless! I cannot say that to you all enough.
