I want to thank
everyone for the outpouring of love and admiration in support of the Graber Family during this tragic time in their lives. To see the number of people flow through the funeral home, after waiting for a long time (and in the rain), some with young children, was unbelievable. There were friends of Scotts' from his horse riding, Safety Town and HHS and the Rust Bucket guys; friends of his brothers Justin and Andrew; friends of Jeff's from all of the local fire departments and so many mothers and fathers of SDLqMiss Ginger's" Safety Town classes, plus her friends at the Hudson Fire Department.
On Friday, Scott was given the honor of riding on "Hudson #1" from the funeral home to the church. From the corner of Oviatt and Aurora streets, all the way to Middleton, there were adults and children who had been touched by Scott and his family. They had signs of love and thanks to the Graber family that were so awesome and heart-felt that I can't even explain how wonderful it was.
It will take a long, long time for all of the hurt and pain to dissipate, but knowing how loved they are by so many will go a long way in healing for the Grabers.
Please accept this note as a thank you from me to all of Hudson on behalf of Jeff, Ginger, Justin, Andrew, Scott's grandmother Sally Sinclair and his grandparents Sandy and Mary Tuttle and Scott's extended family of uncles, aunts, cousins and friends. We will miss him with every ounce of our being.
