Feeling overwhelmed and blessed
I want to thank the Community for being so caring at this difficult time in the sudden passing of my husband, Dennis Babechenko.
The outpouring of support has just been overwhelming. Whether it has been financial assistance, a caring word, a phone call, or a hug; they have all made a big impact on my life at this time.
I knew that Dennis was active in various areas of the community from delivering mail to doing drivers training to coordinating buses for the school district to playing in the Frankentrost Band. However, I have been blown away in finding out really how many lives he touched in one aspect or another.
Then to think that someone would nominate me to the Frankenmuth Credit Union as someone who could use assistance with raking my leaves. The Credit Union Employees and their kids that came out on Sunday were super happy to be here helping me and besides raking my leaves; they even moved a pile of wood chips for me, which was above and beyond anything I could have asked for. For those of you who don’t know, I need my ankle replaced and wear a brace and ambulate with a cane. So this act of kindness by them meant more than I could express in my words of thank you.
In closing, I thank God for being able to be part of a loving, caring, compassionate Community and thank Him for being blessed with having each and everyone one of you in Dennis’ life.
