Bulletin letter to the editor: Thankful for community support after son's death

On Monday, May 6, our beloved son, Michael Manning, went to the Lord. There are so many members of the community who have showed their love and support, we want to give many thanks to them.

Thank you to the Cottage Grove Police Department and paramedics who did their best under such difficult circumstances; they showed professionalism. A special thanks to detective Thomas Ueland for his compassion, support and respect for us.

The outpouring of support from the community, the Lions Club, Suburban Rental and KOK Funeral Home is overwhelming. Also a special thank you to Crossroads Church, Pastor Joanna Fontz and the congregation for all their prayers.

We personally want to thank all of Michael's friends, classmates and parents for their outpouring of love and support. We know how much you all loved him.

Tom and Fay Manning
