Thank You each and every one for your continued love and support. 

Thanks to the "Chick Run Association" who  headed down back roads under sunny skies on June 10th 2006  to raise a few thousand dollars  for Safe Haven Ministries Domestic Violence Programs.  Special thanks to event organizer Karen Clapp.  Thanks to the few dozen mothers and grandmothers  who hopped on their motorcycles in Kent County to raise money.   You are applauded for your efforts towards a worthy cause!

The fundraiser was an incredible support to our family and will help immensly.

We have a long way to go in this whole ordeal. The police assure us of Tim's arrest, but time is a factor. With the court battle continuing and counsling also, the financial battle continues as well.

We cannot THANK ALL OF YOU ENOUGH for helping with this financial burden.

Each of you have give us the encouragment to keep fighting, simply knowing that, we can. Trust me when I say there have been many times when I have questioned our ability to do this, Kevin and I thank you again for showing us we are not alone in this fight.

Kevin and Tami Keenan
