A Journal Letter For Benjamin

July 13, 2016
Emmetsburg News

To the Editor:

I would like to attempt our thankfulness to these surrounding communities in Fight For Benjamin. I have no adequate words to express our gratitude to all these people so am submitting my journal letter to Benjamin on 6-19-2016. I cannot express how deep my soul has been touched by all of you the gift you have given us is hope. Without this, our grief would be unbearable.

Good morning Benjamin! Yesterday was a big day for you and your family. We had your benefit. Started with a motorcycle ride for you. I think we had 40 riders! Then we had a bake sale, meal, and live auction for you. Everyone in your family was there and all supported you. Was a very humbling and big day for us and really brings home what family means. I couldn't sleep, so up early cleaning up, then will get ready for church. We want to buy pizza for everyone to properly thank them for all the help and thoughts of you. You really do have a good family. This is truly what family means not only family, but also community. Many people there and so many donated mind blowing! Also, thank you to you buddy. If it weren't for you, how would we learn what love and family means? I am blessed and you are, too, to have that. The whole world should have that. Love you!
