To the editor:
Our family has endured two tragic freak accidents within two years. This is something no family should ever have to endure. The heartbreak is unexplainable. Freak accident, a term that we often hear about, but could never imagine it happening to our family, let along two freak accidents. The odds are impossible to figure out, but it has happened and to my family.
The one thing we have found out is that living in a small community is a huge blessing. Only in a small town would a family receive an overabundance of outpouring love and support that we have. We feel that had we lived in a big city, we wouldn't have been gifted with the values that people who live in a small town can understand. They realize the pain we have felt, not once, but twice and within a very short period of time. The support we have received is also unexplainable, it is impossible to thank everyone for the kindnesses they have shown on my family, it is constant and will never be forgotten.
