Open Letter to the Seeds Community,
Simple words, thank-you, so simple they feel inadequate.
As you know, we are in what could be called our dark night of the soul. When we heard the actual words “early onset dementia”, I could not take in air, I couldn’t breathe. Without thinking, I called Dar, who came and sat with me, and without any hesitation, before I knew what I, what we, needed to hear, she said “we are in this with you. We will walk with you. We won’t leave.” We had no idea how much these words and subsequent actions would truly mean. I think I am still learning how to receive the gifts we are so undeservedly receiving. Maybe for the rest of my life. When we did not know how to proceed, what to do, or what life could possibly look like, before we could even formulate panic, there was a team, there was a plan, and there was action. There will never be a way to say thank-you with enough weight to hold and encompass all that your support has done for us and means to us. Inadequate as it is, we humbly say THANK-YOU ❤️
– Bev & Woody
Our family has been so blessed by all the love, support, generosity, and prayers we have gotten from the Seeds community. On the days where we are overwhelmed and feel like everything is crashing down on us, we know that our community is there, surrounding and supporting us. There are not enough words to fully express how thankful we are that you guys are walking along side us on this journey.
We (Luke & I) cannot even begin to describe the weight that has been lifted off our shoulders knowing how much you have done, and are still planning on doing, to take care of my parents. This is my worst nightmare and I feel so unprepared to deal with the weight of this diagnosis as a 22 year old, but your community has made it a lot easier. I really appreciate the support you’ve given them in the last few months. I am proud that the church I grew up in, is so willing to help and support my family in so many practical ways. Thank-you is not enough, but your help has made a huge difference.
