However can we thank you?

Seema and John were clearly overwhelmed today when I sent them photos of all the volunteers who worked tirelessly in their yard.  This amazing group of volunteers offered their time to weed, prune, power wash, mulch, build a new gate (!) and endless other jobs to make their yard look like new.

While Seema's sister Sonia, Seema's parents and I cleaned a little inside we were simply amazed how many kind people of all ages gave up their Sunday to perform "Operation Hess yard clean-up".  Special thanks to Lisa Pendergast, who headed up this effort along with her husband Karl.

On a personal note it brought tears to my eyes to see how much you all care about the Hess family and are eager to committ your time and energies to ease some of the stress which this family have to endure.  I thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

Seema and John were eager to make sure they communicate their appreciation and thanks to each and everyone of you.

Lastly, we are not at the finish line yet with the house. Sonia has kindly offered to continue cleaning inside, but we may need additional help, so please look out for more information on volunteering from your fearless leader, Lisa Pendergast.
