Overwhelmed by act of kindness

To the Editor:

Living in a small town has again shown me how loving and compassionate friends can be.

My son passed away unexpectedly in August 2012. I found out, then, just how many friends he had. Before James died, he had planned to remodel and extend our front porch. His friends came to me and told me they were going to finish what my son had started. This is such a huge act of kindness, that I am overwhelmed. I hope my son in heaven knows what love these friends are showing for him.

I want to thank all of you who helped and a special thank-you to the person that got this all started and to the gentleman who donated the lumber.

I would also like to thank the Clinton Township Library for allowing my daughter to place a bench there in memory of her brother.

God bless you all!

Thanks for making Sandwich Fair a success

To the Editor:

All of us at Fox Valley Older Adult Services would like to thank the many hard-working and kind-hearted groups and individuals who made this year’s Sandwich Fair such a rousing success for us.

First of all we would like to thank Larry Dannewitz and the Sandwich Fair Association Board of Directors for providing the “Meet Me at the Fair” program that was enjoyed by so many seniors and for providing security for the many people crossing Suydam Road from our parking lot.

A large number of dedicated volunteers managed and staffed Grannie’s Eatery, our craft booth, the FVOAS parking lot each day – far too many to name individually. We appreciate the many hours of hard work that were volunteered to support the many programs and services that we provide so seniors in DeKalb, LaSalle, Bureau, Kendall and Kane counties can continue to live independent, active lives.
