Also a thank-you to all who helped her throughout the past few months including the donations from friends, and customers, local merchants, Tidioute Lions Club, and Bingo committee. A special thank-you to Tidioute First United Methodist Church for their caring, donations, time and allowing the benefit to be held at their church.
"I was shocked and surprised when I found out that a benefit was held on my behalf," she said. "I have never been so surprised and so deeply touched. What a wonderful feeling that so many people care about me. I have found that a small town can pull together to support each other and how special that is. I have also found that I have many caring friends and customers. I have truly been blessed in so many ways-my health, dear friends and customers and a caring town. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
