June 12, 2013 —
Olive Hill and Carter County is a very generous community. Some of our friends and family hosted a "Charlie Cooper Benefit" on Saturday, June 1, and we had a wonderful turnout. A very special thanks to individuals and businesses in Olive Hill, Grayson, and Ashland who donated food, gift certificates, and items for the dinner and auction.
Thanks to the auctioneers for their time and effort, Globe Christian Church for the use of their fellowship hall, and to anyone that helped in anyway to help make the benefit a wonderful success. We appreciate all the cards, prayers, and support that each one has given to Charlie since his illness when his leukemia relapsed in March.
Please continue to pray for Charlie as he battles issues each day from the cancer and treatment. We love you all.
