Posted 19 February 2017 at 9:18 am


A huge heartfelt thanks from the bottom of our hearts to our families, friends, fire companies, churches, organizations, clubs, businesses, Albion and Medina school districts, Yvonne Feller Freeman for the starting the GoFundMe and everyone who donated. Also, thank you to our families for the shower they gave us to replace items we lost.

Thank you to Nick Salvatore who started the benefit and basket raffle (on Feb. 4) with Eagle Creek Band. Many thanks also to the Who Dats, Chris Moore and Distant View band. Also, thank you to Newbies chicken barbecue and to everyone who donated gift certificates, baskets and items to the raffle, and for everyone who went around picking up items and baskets.

Many thanks to everyone who helped before, during and after the raffle. And thank you to the Elks Club for the use of their facilities for the benefit. What a wonderful night it turned out to be. We are so grateful for all of you!

We have also been blessed by the cards we received from family, friends and friends we haven’t met yet. What a wonderful community we live in. To people who donated clothes, shoes, essential items (some of this was on Christmas Day taking time from their own families), we thank each and every one of you.  Please forgive me if I left anyone out.

Again, many, many thanks to all of you. May God bless you as he has truly blessed us.

Very sincerely,

Don and Fonda Carr
