Word of thanks for kind support

Last week the police department and code enforcement, along with the mayor’s office, held a cookout benefit for my wife, Tina Striegel, who is fighting cancer, to help pay for medical bills and to show support.

To say “thank you” doesn’t seem enough. There are a lot of people who made it possible for this benefit to come about — the mayor’s office, Rick Scheid, Dianna, Laurie Tharp, Jamie Ennen, Gary Huxel, Kelli Kennedy, Cherryl Long, Tim Manley, Steve Williams and Aaron Powell.

Also thanks to those who helped to cook and to serve the great food and for all of the donated baked goods, and yes, they were awesome to taste.

It warmed our hearts to see so many come to eat lunch, to care. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
