We wish to thank the anonymous family who left the "Christmas Jar" on our doorstep.
This was our first Christmas without our son and, as you can imagine, we struggled to find joy in this holiday season. Even after Kyle joined the Army, he was always able to come home on leave for the holidays. When we discovered your Christmas Jar, we were in awe that anyone would think us worthy of such a gift.
Thank you for honoring Kyle and for giving his parents a welcomed measure of holiday spirit. Please know that the money will be used to fill care packages to the 1-17 soldiers in Kyle's unit and they, too, will know and experience firsthand your kind and generous spirit.
Michael and Lori Coumas
