N E W S F RO M Y O U R RU D G AT E N E I G H B O R S Dear Rudgate Family, Though we have only been in your neighborhood for 18 months, the warmth you have shown us makes us feel like we have been here forever. In case you haven’t heard, our 10 year old son was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer in early March. Life has been crazy but many of you have made things so much more tolerable by stopping to introduce yourselves, cooking meals, cleaning up our yard, and helping us with the care of our other children. You may even have had some neighborhood kids knock on your door selling “Fight for Jake” bracelets, and thank you for listening to them. We have had a lot of people coming and going from the house and our big dog has gotten out without us knowing. Each time a friendly neighbor has read his tag and called us so we could go and retrieve him. Thanks for looking out for us that way too. We can’t thank you enough for being such wonderful neighbors and friends. Follow Jacob’s progress on Site name is: Jacobcrump (no spaces). We have a long fight ahead of us but your care and support is something we so much appreciate. A very special thank you to all our new friends on Farmington. You are very special people and we are blessed to be able to call you family. We hope to win this fight with childhood cancer and start paying your favors forward! Love, Jody Crump and Family, Heathrow Ave.
