Thank You

To each and every one of you - no words can express how much it has meant to us that you reached out to show your compassion and love to Paige’s family during this most difficult time.


To all of the students, the past, present and the up-and-coming - thank you for your support, thank you for the hugs and cards. Thank you for preparing the park so beautifully in honor of Paige on a hot Friday night; your genuine kindness was felt, seen and so appreciated by all who loved her.


To the teachers – to those who taught and helped to form Paige into a beautiful, bright and caring young woman – we appreciate all of the thoughts and prayers that were sent her way.


To the parents of these caring, wonderful children, you are raising such remarkable young men and women. We thank you for the home cooked meals and for your thoughts and prayers.


And most of all I would like to thank this entire community for its love and support – we truly have no words to express our appreciation for each of you. Please know how blessed and grateful we are to be a part of such a wonderful community. The stories and memories you have of Paige will continue to keep her alive in all of our hearts.
