To the editor:

We are utterly blown away by the generosity of this community. Thank you to everyone who donated items for the silent auction, money and food for the benefit. Thank you to everyone who came out to support our Dad; he really enjoyed seeing everybody and watching the basketball games! It’s amazing to see all the support for him from the community and those who made a special trip to Nevada just to support him. We wish we could thank each of you personally. A big thank-you to Alice Moody for organizing the dinner, Bruce and Denise Foth for donating the beef, the Kiwanis Club and Nancy Port for organizing the silent auction, the Nevada Community School District for volunteering their time, as well as the use of the gym and lunch room to hold the event and Gary and Diane Vasey for organizing the event. We know there are many more people that were involved and appreciate every last one of you! All we can say is thank you.
