Hope to see you here in the near future, so we can visit for a time...Take care...God be with all of you...Jeff, Kay and Shawn

    Yes please update, I hope all is going well in your new surroundings, and everything is put togeather and picked up. Please if you can post some pictures of the accommodation updates to your home. When it is ready. Dad has been telliing me about it. I hope you are all well rested. Mary, Relax , take a day at a spa or something . I fully understand all the stress such happenings can put on people. I am sure all the changes are overwhelming for all of you. Ben, what a super trooper you are, and one amazing testimony of faith and endurance. I am praying that you all adjust to the changes and for Ben to get stronger each day. God bless, Laura Peterson

    Hi Ben,  How is it going being home again?  Did the trip go well and are you enjoying seeing all your friends again. ?    Imagine you are busy with therapy each day and finding it to be very different from Co.  I know you work hard at it and I pray for your strength and healing often.  You and your family are always on our minds and we wish you complete healing.  Blessings and Gods best, Etoile

    Hey Ben and family,

    Keep us posted on Caringbridge how things are going for you and your family now that your home. We missed you at church on Sunday. Hope things are going good and we hope to see you all at church on Sunday. I bet it is different being at home once again and no one pushing you to do those exercises. You keep working hard Ben and we will all keep praying for that MIRACLE that we are all hoping for. Take care and all our thoughts and prayers are still with you and your family.

    Love Tim and Susie

    Dear Mary, Nathan and Ben:

    Thinking of you always . . . knowing it will be wonderful to be home again and ready to put into practice everything you have learned at Craig. I remember feeling horribly frightened when I took Jason home. Can I do this? Your family and your faith and your love just blows me away and am proud just to know all of you -- whether by relation or by acquaintance -- and how you are such a group of amazing people that have created such an incredible and indestructible bond called family.

    Hug Ben for me. All your sons are really something to be proud of. And so are you.

    Love, Val, Terry and family
