To the Editor:

The family of Kaleb Standley Borders would like to thank DeBaun Funeral Home for the wonderful care and preparation of our Little Angel Kaleb, and the lovely Memorial Service. A special thank you to Pastor Tom Hess and Pastor Jeff Bridgewater for the beautiful tribute to Kaleb.

I would like to send a very special thank you to my church family at Berea Christian Church for the many fund-raisers, donations, the many prayers of support and kindness shown to my family during Kaleb's battle with brain cancer. I also would like to thank them for the lovely funeral dinner they provided for my family.

Our family would like to than Krambo's for their Fourth Annual Dash for Cash Motorcycle Ride fund-raiser they held on June 15th for Kaleb and all who helped.

Thanks to Kroger, Pepsi and Lacy Jordan and her helpers for the money they raised at the food stand in front of Kroger.

Thank you to Autumn Drake and the many people from First United Methodist Church who provided food and supplies to our family in Shelburn.

Thanks to Jackie Hanson's family and friends for the car wash fund-raiser they had on Aug. 15.

A special thank you to Kim Huffer, a special friend Cindy Schimtz and all who helped out with the fund-raiser at Pizza Hut and all who donated items to the silent auction on Aug. 15. The community showed so much support that was very much appreciated.

Our family would also like to thank coach Ron Kiernicki and the Northview boys soccer team for the donation to Make-A-Wish Foundation in Kaleb's name. The soccer ball signed by all the boys and presented to Kaleb's grandparents, Ron and Patty Standley.

Thank you to our many friends and family members for the many thoughtful cards, flowers, supportive phone calls, donations to Make-A-Wish Foundation in Kaleb's name and the kind words of encouragement and continued prayers during our difficult time.

A special thank you to my best friend Debi Brown for always being by my side day or night through this difficult time.

Kaleb has touched so many. Thank you from the bottom of our hears, may God bless you all.

The family of Kaleb Standley Borders
