    I myself, along with my Dad, Little Sister and Grandpa (Ronnie, Jerry and Moriah all from Daytona FL.) would like to let Aunt Jean and Uncle Bill know that they are in our thoughts and prayers and that we are just thankful that they are okay. We love you all and will continue to pray for you! The Wiegands

    I would like to also thank the Hillsboro Fire Dept.for responding to the fire that took the home of my aunt and uncle. You would have to know my aunt to know that she is a wonderful person and shows love to everyone she meets. There are not many people like her left in this world. With her recent illness and now a fire taking her home she will still wear a smile and know that the lord will take care of her. She will tell her family not to worry about tham that they will be okay. That is the kind of woman that she is. Any donations that are made to her family to allow her the pleasure of having a home again would be greatly appreciated. I know that times are hard for us all but to see a wonderful woman like her going through a hard time makes me feel that maybe the times I think are hard and really little bumps in the road.

    I have to extend my deep appreciation to the Hillsboro Fire Dept. They have been there for my parents twice now within this month. We just about lost my mother about 2 wks ago after she collasped in their kitchen with a cardiac complication. They are a wonderful decicated group who deserves our support & donations. Also I want to thank the Morehead Clinic Pharmacy, Fleming Co Home Health, People's Clinic, American Red Cross and above all our super friends & neigbors. May the Lord bless all involved & watch over you like he did my parents yesterday. Any donations to assist my parents to set up home again would be appreciated. Leave a message at (edited). Or you can contact me at Thank You!! Sandra Stevens
