We feel so much more

To the Editor:

On behalf of the Shannon Poppe Gilbert Cancer Benefit, I would like to thank Mandi Kosbab at Edward Jones, Brian and Renee Poppe, and Poppe’s Store and Carwash for its sponsorship.

I would like to thank all the local businesses for their generosity in giving items for the silent auction, and all the individuals who just called or emailed saying they would like to donate to the silent auction.

Also, to the kitchen help and all the people who donated items for the dinner.

We were so pleased to see such support and love from all the people who came to the benefit. Shannon is truly blessed to have such a caring community, family and friendships that came from near and far to support her.

“Thank you” doesn’t seem like it’s enough, because what we feel in our hearts is so much more.
