Special thank you to our community, surrounding communities, churches, Rodeo Association, family and friends and Bad Boy Mowers who prayed continuously and supported us with numerous blessings to count during this time. It will never be forgotten or took for granted. Also, we want to thank Blaine's oncology team at UAMS, Dr. Muthu Veeraputhiran, his staff and partners and the oncology nurses at UAMS on halls E, H and F, for your loving care and spiritual support through his treatments.

Don't be afraid, for I am with you. Don't be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10
