    There were a couple of us from the DMF Lend A Hand program at the benefit - we really enjoyed meeting so many of Ryan's friends and family!
    For those who were unable to make it to the benefit, we will keep the online giving site open for Ryan until July 1st.  To make an online gift, go to www.dakmed.org/lendahand and click 'Donate' then 'donate now' and enter a gift amount next to Ryan's Benefit Fund.   DMF Lend A Hand is providing a match of $5,000 to help Ryan and 100% of gifts to Lend A Hand are distributed.  We appreciate being a part of your team to help Ryan.

    Hey Spaaarky!!!

    It was so good to
    get to chat with you at last Friday!! The benefit was a blast and the turn out
    couldn’t have been better! Just goes to show you how many lives you have
    touched and how many people care about you! I talked to Grandma Helen and said
    I’d have to stop by for that really expensive lemon bread next time I’m
    visiting Grandma Loraine! She told me she’d make me a whole loaf for free!!!
    Such a sweetheart!


    Take care

    I am so sorry I couldn't make it to the benefit!  I really thought I was going to be able to shut at work I could attend.... I guess I could have pulled the soybean tender all the way up to El Zagel.... then try to dump bean in a brand new seed tender.....tee hee (and see if we can take any paint off?  Don't know if you remember that from last spring but I sure do!  You are an amazing young man and I wish you all the best ..... I will help out in any way I can!  God Bless,


    (p.s. don't let Jerry Butenhoff give you any crap ok?  I can give it right back to him ... LOL)
