“Thank you… for sharing our lives, our party, and your Lincolnwood!”

Dear Beth and Ross,

Dan and I want to thank you for being part of our wonderful surprise party. We were so completely unsuspecting that has taken a while for it to sink in for us to sort through all our emotions!

All of us mentioned how-when we tell people about our many years together at Lincolnwood, they look at us with shock and even a bit of envy. How can a family of that magnitude spend a week together and all get along? Dan and I believe that the unusual strength of our family bonds allows us all to look beyond minor differences. We are an extremely diverse group-with many different tastes, goals and even senses of humor. But we all share the same love of family, Lincolnwood, and just having a good time! We also draw strength from each other in times of struggle. And to be sure when one hurts, we all hurt.

Thank you, Beth, Ross, Autumn, Carson, and Landon for sharing our lives, our party, and your Lincolnwood!

Warmest Regards and God Bless! Vicky and Dan
