To the editor:

Since the horrific accident in September, where Julianna Brown and Sophia True lost their lives, I have been truly blessed to have witnessed first hand our community come together to be there for the friends and family of these three girls. I am so happy to say that Penelope has gotten out of the hospital and continues to make positive progress as well. But I would also like to send a huge thank you to everyone that helped with the benefits that took place. I got to meet many people that helped so much and I am so grateful for them.

Tim Brown and the entire Brown Funeral Home staff were completely amazing in assisting us with everything that needed to be done.

Jeremy Bayles the owner of Wings Etc. in Niles was the first one willing to jump in and have a benefit at his restaurant.
