Letter: Donations to Tommeraus benefit are appreciatedOn behalf of the Tommeraus/Leapaldt family, we would like to thank everyone who was involved in the Peggy Tommeraus benefit. From the bottom of our hearts, we truly want to thank individuals and businesses who donated items, money and/or their time for the benefit. Thanks also to those people who attended and thank you to the Doublewood, DMF Lend a Hand, Thrivent Financial and Bell State Bank.
Words cannot explain how grateful we are and how truly blessed we are to have all of you in our lives and we have definitely felt the love from all over. Recently (Oct. 30), Peggy underwent double-lung transplant surgery and heart bypass surgery. She has a long road ahead of her for recovery, but the doctor said she’s definitely on the right path and anticipates long-term success.
Ultimately, we also want to thank the donor family for making the unselfish decision to donate their loved one’s organs. In the midst of your loss and grief, you have given Peggy the gift of life and the opportunity to give back some day. God bless.
