| Good Evening Sir,
Your support during National Police Week made our trip so much easier because we were able to be near our son and daughters families. Your support also enabled us to assist them financially with airfare and other incidentals. Our daughter/son-in-law have two very young children, so it was a tremendous help to be able to be in the same hotel to support them. Our son and both of our mothers were in the dame hotel as well. There are no words to fully describe what being there together to support each other during such an emotionally time meant to us.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts....
Your generosity meant so much to my broken heart.
