We are so thankful to all of you for your love, support and prayers over the past year. It is because of people like you that we will be able to honor Britney’s last wish of building an orphanage in Grand Goave, Haiti. We would like to especially thank Lex & Renee Edme of Mission of Hope International who brought us to Haiti and showed us what Britney saw. On that trip we met a Boston architect named Paul Fallon for whom we are eternally grateful to. He has volunteered to design our vision of the BLB orphanage and, as you will see, has done an amazing job. When Paul asked co-workers if anyone wanted to help: Kim, Dan, Jess, Paula. Nick, Andrea, Rob and Josh stepped up and a sincere thank you to them. Another big thank you goes to Brian Twomey & John Thompsen of the structural engineering firm Simpson Gumpertz & Heger who have donated their time to make sure that our orphanage is structurally sound. Not a day goes by that we don’t miss our Britney, but we are thankful for the wonderful memories that we had with her.
With Faith, Hope and Love,
Len, Cherylann, Bernie & Richie
