the Family of Bethanie
would like to give great thanks to everyone that came out to the benefit
on Sunday. We would also like to thank everyone that has donated in anyway
to the benefit. The money that has been raised will be used to help
support Bethanie's three teenage children.
Bethanie's disappearance has been one of the hardest things we have ever
had to go through. We pray everyday that she is found safe and we will
have her home with us to love and support as we always have. The out
pouring of support and help that has come our way from family, friends and
the public in general has been a blessing. THANK YOU just seems like not
enough and we wish that there was more we could say to show how grateful
we are for all the support we have gotten and continue to receive.
Remember that no act of kindness goes unnoticed or is forgotten.
