Marge McKenzie: Thank you for helping
December 10, 2010
To the editor:
I would like to thank the community of Craig, St. Michael Catholic Church, the Revs. Jim Fox and Michael Rapp, and parishioners for all their support.
And, I could not thank enough my sister Pink Ladies and The Memorial Hospital employees Christy Beckerman and Jen Talkington for all their hard work and long hours.
The church youths that gave of themselves long hours deserve thanks, as well.
Thank you to the Craig Daily Press and KRAI for the advertising they provided.
The benefit luncheon/dinner went beyond my expectations. It just reaffirms what I always believed — that Craig is a wonderful place to be.
In these difficult economic times, people still donated generously, which means they gave with their hearts. I was overwhelmed by the love and kindness I received.
People came to my home to make sure I got their donations because they wanted to know that I would get to be with my daughter and her family.
Someone stopped me downtown as I left the Community Budget Center to give me a donation. (My son-in-law asked me to look for snowsuits for himself and my grandson, Robert.)
These are just beautiful examples of the kind of people we have here in Craig.
There were donations made for me at St. Michael, and at the hospital as well. God heard my call and blessed me with this community called Craig. I expect to stay and help my daughters' family longer than two weeks with these blessings.
For all the support, prayers, well wishes for my daughter and myself, may God bless you all.
If anyone is still interested in helping, please call Dianne King or the Rev. Jim Fox at St. Michael Catholic Church at 824-5330.
We will be in touch.
