“This has come to a huge shock to us,” they said in the post. “We have been blessed over the last 5 years to be a part of your family, from birthdays, engagements, Mother’s Day, celebration of lives, tons of laughs & tears. You have included us. You helped us start from nothing to number one in our area.”
