A letter from the Sharons

Steve and Jane Sharon | Friday, February 13, 2004

We just wanted to write and let you all know how much we really appreciate all that you have done for us and for Chad. There are no words that can express how thankful we are to have caring people like all of you at the University and the surrounding community. We could not imagine how we would have handled a tragedy like we’ve been through without all of your love and caring. You have done all that you could do for us and then a lot more. We just want to let you know that we are doing okay. Every day seems to bring about some sort of challenge to deal with. But we will deal with each and every one, as we know Chad would want us to. We still wonder every day what really happened that day that Chad was taken from us. But we know someday we can ask him. We have to just trust that God is taking good care of him. I promise we will be back to see all of you again. Until then remember, as we do, that Chad is watching all of us, and one thing we all can do for him is make him proud of all of us. We sure were proud of him. Now it’s our turn to show him. Take care and God bless everyone.
