Event was a blessing for King George family

I would like thank The Free Lance-Star for the write-up of an event that was publicized in the FLS in July ["County rallying around firefighter," June 5].

The "Give Bob 5" event was put on for my husband, Bob, a King George firefighter/medic, who has stage 4 colon cancer. The event was a fundraiser to help our family with expenses.

We are very grateful to the many people who assisted in making the event a huge blessing to our family. We are extremely blessed to belong to a community where the local fire departments, Sheriff's Office, state police, community churches and residents can work together.

We thank God that His word is alive here in our community. "Loving your neighbor as yourself."--Matthew 12:31
