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 haven't been on Facebook for a few years, but the desire to say thank you is overwhelming! Thank you, thank you a million times over everyone for all of your love, prayers, support, and generosity. You have been a true comfort & help during such an all-impacting loss. Praying God puts blessing right back into all of your lives for the kindness you have shown to us. We miss David terribly, but his love for us is helping us along even now.

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.
