Letter: Heartfelt thanks for our benefit

Diane and I would like to say a heartfelt “thank-you” to all who helped with and attended our benefit recently. We are overwhelmed and humbled by the support of the community. The only thing that makes us sad is the reality that we probably will never be able to repay the favor.

We would like to say a special “thanks” to the lead organizing team of Emily Trautmann, Pam Sorenson and Kay Nomeland. Also to Jeana Peinovich of Dakota Medical Foundation, James Tandeski of The Bowler, and, of course, our not-ready-for-prime-time players, Dave Kolpack, Bob Johnson and Dana Mogck. Even though we had never met Mogck before, he took time out of his busy schedule to help emcee, which says volumes about his character and compassion.

Although life has been a little rough lately, both personally and financially, having such unbelievable support from friends and family has made us feel like the richest people in the world. Thank you all again, and God bless.
