Melody Villard, Beth Gilchrist, Diane Brannan, MaryBea and family: An amazing community

To the editor:

As event organizers, you always hope that your event is successful. We think we found the secret. We focused our event on a woman with a kind heart, a generous spirit and a faithful soul. We added an incredibly close and caring community and were overwhelmed with how amazing our community could be. There is no way we possibly could thank each and every one of MaryBea's supporters by name here. We do want to give a special thank you to a few who made the event possible; the Centennial Mall, Darrell Neu Auctioneer, Kraupie Real Estate and Auction Service, and the wonderful "family" we have found in the staff at Vallarta's Mexican Restaurant. Your support is truly a blessing.

So many times you hear things like "we don't worry about dressing up … this is Craig" or "we wish there was more to do, but … this is Craig." On Feb. 7, our community came together to show love and support for a longtime and well loved local resident. Our family couldn't help but stand by, overwhelmed by the amazing gestures and support, and all the while thinking "This is Craig!" We thank each and every one of you and count you all as one of MaryBea's blessings.

Thank you again for the support, donations, thoughts, and prayers for MaryBea.

Melody Villard, Beth Gilchrist, Diane Brannan, MaryBea and our entire family are grateful.
