Wow. We are filled with hope and love tonight. Thank you, dear friends. The vigil tonight was perfect in every way. Hundreds of people came together out of love and respect for this amazing family that has impacted so many lives. Thank you for coming, for praying, for encouraging us, hugging us, bringing cards and generous donations, and standing up in unison to say that you are walking this road with us. On behalf of the Owen/Mayer family, please know how deeply appreciative we are of YOU.
Those of you who were there tonight can personally attest to the amazing strength Jeremy is displaying right now. He is making his parents so proud. Jess was able to listen in to the vigil from her new room on the rehab floor at Harborview. We look forward to bringing the signed banners, books and cards to all three of them tomorrow.
If you were not able to make it to the vigil tonight and would like to help contribute towards the medical expenses these kids are accumulating, we have a fund established and would be so grateful for your help in any way. You can make checks payable to the Owen Mayer Family Relief Fund and mail them to:
Owen Mayer Family Relief Fund
2020 Maltby Road, Ste 7, PMB 298
Bothell, WA 98021
You might have seen the vigil featured on one of the local news channels this evening. They were all present and are providing their viewers with the relief fund information, so we are very hopeful that this will give us a good start to helping cover some of the medical bills that are quickly accumulating. We will undoubtedly need to do more fundraising as time moves forward, and I will make sure to let you know if there is any other way you can help. I’ll post a few photos from the vigil here tonight. The strength of community and the power of God together in one place…such a beautiful thing. Much love to each of you from the Owen/Mayer family….
