Thank You

Two small words that are so easy to say yet so easy to overlook.

A phrase that sometimes is all you have to convey mass amounts of gratitude but just can't find anything else to say.

I say it now to those who came to the blood drive last night and helped us collect 24 units for the local Red Cross.

To everyone who supported and continue to support all we do to keep the memory of Jessica and Kelli alive with scholarships, blood drives, fundraisers, tree planting, education, advocacy, and whatever else I can do to make sure these young women are never forgotten.

To the officers who listen to me present my story in hopes of changing the way they approach responsive and pursuit driving.

To those who are working to rename a section of Interstate 64 for Jessica and Kelli.

To everyone who ever sent me a picture of Jessica and Kelli, or told me a story, a memory, a moment about them.

To those who have stood by me when I was my at my highest and at my lowest.

To those of you who take a few minutes of your day to read my ramblings.

Finally - to those who served our country, and continue to serve, and the families that have lost loved ones  who paid the ultimate price in protecting our freedom.

Thank you.  So much.
