A quick thank you from Tommy and Robyn regarding Tommy's Nite Out II:
Please do not interpret our delay in reaching out to you as anything, but Tommy and I processing the magnitude of your generosity and basically what this group has done for us. I wish we could express this in a more creative way than just words because words really do fail us at this time. I can tell you that several times Saturday night I was overcome with gratitude and sheer blessing to know that I would not want to be anywhere else in the world besides in that room with all of you. Again you have taken what was suppose to be a tragedy and turned it into a triumph of Spirit and sheer good will. Every one of you have not only shared your heart and soul, but your hands and feet. I promise I don't mean to sound "too religious," but you have allowed God to use each one of you in our lives to live out what Scripture commands us to do for one another. Tommy and I really are humbled by this and we continue to pray that our circumstances will be used to glorify God. Through these events you have enabled us to be comforted with good care so we are not overcome, but we are able to concentrate on what is truly important and that is our relationships. THERE IS NO GREATER GIFT THAN TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER! Thank you for loving our family, and I beg your patience as we continue to learn from you how to go forward and love not only you, but others as they are brought into our path. We pray that you truly have been blessed through this time, we do not want this to be a one-way blessing!
The party could not have been more beautiful and successful. We heard over and over again how impressed people were with how well the event was executed and the abundance that came forth from such a small group over such a short period of time. From Tony and Mary Beth's stewardship to the phone-a-thon, to all of the details of paper work, e-mails, errands, input, output, the food-I heard was delicious, the band-that was awesome, the blood, sweat, tears, the clean up crew, the precious parking crew, the bar crew, the auction group, the people who donated the fabulous auction items and those who bought them. FUN, FUN, FUN! Those who donated and didn't even come to the party. Okay I am in tears now, the list goes on and on. If somehow we do not personally thank you, please know we have prayed for you and are so grateful for you. We want to hear details and behind the scenes stories, so we will have a get-together soon to share our experiences. We would love to hear stories from anyone who wants to share. Tommy hopes to be sending a blog today or tomorrow sharing a story (he has to get permission) so stay tuned.
We love you dear friends,
Tommy, Robyn, Ross and Jack"
