As many of you heard, Jessica is home now and recovering from her injuries. She and her family are extremely grateful for everyone's support. I am pleased, but also not surprised at how fast this fund grew. May it be a blessing to her and her family. Once again, thank you everybody.

I know my cousin has been overwhelmed by the love and support. But honestly, so have the rest of us. A sincerest thank you to all of you. It's so incredibly heart warming to see everyone from close family to complete strangers care so much. Truly a bright light in a time of darkness. Again, thank you to all of you.

I live in Meridian, just outside of Boise. Should anyone need a place to stay, we have an extra room and our house is very easy to reach from the freeway. I went to school with Connie and John. My heart and prayers are with you.
