Family thanks our community

Our family has been through a dark valley these past nine months and we are deeply grateful and humbled by the support and encouragement we have received from the parish and community.

The event on April 22 totally overwhelmed us and lifted our spirits beyond belief. We needed that more than we realized. Mark began to have more strength and movement in his legs and arm, and we all felt so encouraged to know that you were all behind us.

It takes an entire community to raise a child, and we saw all of those important leaders that afternoon who have touched our lives for the past 32 years and helped our children to become the strong resilient people they have become.

Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive. Thanks for all you have sacrificed for the Stockbrocks family.

A mass of Thanksgiving will be offered on Monday, November 5, 9 a.m. at Sts. Joachim and Ann Parish in Aldergrove.

God bless your caring hearts of gold. My children continue to heal and recover.

Pat, Matthew, Alison, and Mark Stockbrocks, Aldergrove
