Wow! Where do we start? It is impossible to thank everyone who was involved in the playground project. I so wish that we could. These are a few thanks that we shared the day of the dedication…
We can’t tell you how loved and supported it makes us feel to see all of you here today. God continues to pour out His love to us through the body of Christ.
There are so many people we could thank today. It is hard to know where to start. We wanted to take time to specifically thank a few:
Ben Hutton & Hutton Construction–general contractor
Joel, Jason, Eric & PG Playgrounds
House of Glass
Ian Johnson–designed Cora’s Playground sign
Joe & Kasa–sign
Exquisite Gifts & their helium company–balloons and helium
Evan LaRue–sound system for dedication
Julie & Heather along with MANY Etsy vendors
Grace Community Church
Whether you donated your time and labor, gave to the project, or even prayed for our family, you all had a part in Cora’s Playground. Thank you.
Today is definitely bittersweet for us. Our hearts are heavy, as we would trade this playground to have Cora back with us in a second. While we don’t understand, it wasn’t part of God’s plan for Cora to be here today.
But the awesome part about today is being able to look back and see how God has worked so mightily in our lives and the lives around us through tragedy. We are so thankful to have this playground as a remembering stone for our family. Cora’s Playground will always serve as a reminder to us of our sweet Cora’s life and how purposeful her 341 days with us were. It will be a place that we can always bring our family and tell them of God’s love and faithfulness to us.
Thank you so much for being a part of that.
Most of all we just want to take time this afternoon to thank God for all He has done. Thank you for being here to join us in praising Him today.
