Letter: Thanks to local friends and family for support



Never take life for granted is what my family has learned in the last few months as we cope with our sweet granddaughter Hannah’s brain injury. Last weekend there was a benefit dinner held at the Carmel American Legion. Charlie and Judy Holmes are the great aunt and uncle of Hannah. Love of family knows no bounds, as these two dear relatives organized this fundraiser that raised over $9,000.

Friends, relatives, Legion members, Legion Riders and so many compassionate people gathered to work this event on May 21 to help 3-year-old Hannah. So many others came to support the cause because we all have little ones. Hannah’s recovery is going to be a long journey. It is just like starting life over again. She will need to learn to swallow, eat, walk and talk. Rehabilitation will be a long road with many hurdles and expenses. The generosity, love and support from members of your community is overwhelming. The family of Hannah is humbled by all those who rallied in support of our precious little granddaughter.
