To Our Community of Friends:
Words simply can not adequately express how truly grateful Joe and I are to each and every one of you for your acts of kindness shown towards our family, as we daily deal with Devinns illness. You may have thought we were not looking or paying attention, but we saw you extend to us love that was unimaginable.
Each of you know what you did, and we feel like you were representative of Gods help in time of need. You knew when we needed to talk, so you called us to remind us that you were thinking and praying to God on our behalf, because we needed His touch and guidance.
We were faced with something that we had no idea was to be a part of our lives – Cancer. You, our Community of Friends, extended your tremendous love for us with prayers, meals, drinks, snacks, books, monetary gifts, garage sales, BBQ dinner sales, the silent and live auction, raffle ticket sales and so many other ways, which have left the LaRive Family speechless.
Every tear you shared and every phone call you made, the hours you labored and the time and sweat you spend preparing, and attending all of the functions on our behalf – is so dearly appreciated, humbly accepted, and will forever be remembered.
We never could have made it this far without God and each of you! We have a long road ahead of us and know the strength we receive from God and the prayers you have spoken will get us through.
It is our prayer that God would bless each of you bountifully, for the services given to us, and that he would supply all your needs according to His riches in glory.
In Gods Love,
Joe, Carrie, Devinn and Mattie LaRive
