Default Big thank you from the Bump family



Well, like I have said, thanks just is not enough, but I had to say it.
Still trying to fully come to terms with the whole thing, but I tell you the mood in my house is 1000 times better than it has been in days. Before this afternoon, just the moral support alone was one of the biggest things getting me through. You guys and gals rock
I simply can not express my gratitude. Frankly, aside from the fine folks here, i had been getting pretty disgusted with this world lately. Somehow, the world looks a heck of a lot better now.
What more can I say. I love you all and I am more grateful than you can ever imagine. I promise to do my best to be a good steward of my blessings and be the person that you feel I am that made be deserving of this wonderful gift.
Okay, I think I am going to go cry now

Now...a word from the Mrs.

Although I don't understand the whole Barney thing... I just wanted to say



(kind of girly, I know...)

It seems that all I ever hear about is the bad in this world, I never hear of the good. Well, today was the opposite for me! You guys and gals don't know how much of a burden has been lifted off of me because of your generous gift. I know now that I can get my daughter'* out of here and to a better place.

Words can't express how I'm feeling right now! I have been tearing up all afternoon. I know that the Lord will bless each and every one of you for what you have done for us!

God Bless
~Marcia~

Money can't cure everything, but it can temporarily ease your stress.

Rumor on the street is there'* a couple hundred more (rounded) on the way next week to top it off.

You made an impression on us.

This whole thing was worth all of the sleep I missed out on today... I am just glad I was able to be a part of it.

Can some one sticky this for a few days please.
Glad to know I made an impression.
I just hope that I never disappoint anyone. I don't want to let anyone down thinking I am better than I really am. All I can be is who I am.

Stickied.

Let us down? You were rewarded, respected, and honored for who you and your family are. Don't think we're so naive that you could pull the wool over our eyes and make us think you were something you aren't.

We can't PIF everyone we'd like to. But we can hit the important ones. You and your family are part of our family. We take care of our own.

thanks... you guys know what I mean. I just want to be deserving. And, I still don't think I am.


Anyways, quick funny side note.
The neighbor called (one we liked) and needed to run to the store for cigarettes, but her daughter was sleeping. She asked my wife to come sit in the house for a minute while she ran to the store. She was gone about 5 minutes and brougt my wife a $5.00 instant lotto ticket. We won $15.oo

Okay, a few more quick posts, and I am off to bed.
The wife is so happy she shaved her legs.
