Letter: Thanks for love and support

To the editor,

I would like to say thank you to all of the people who had gone to the aid of my brother, Todd Steffenson, when he went into cardiac arrest while running. What you did for us, his family, was not only to save him at that moment, but you gave all of us the chance to get to Minnesota to be at Todd's side and to be able to tell him how much we all loved him prior to his passing. You will never realize how much that truly meant to each of us. To everyone in Hastings, their friends in the surrounding areas, I thank you for all of the love and support you have shown Todd's wife, Kari; and his children, Brandi, Leo, and Elizabeth; his mother, Gretchen, his father, Lyle, and his wife, Carole. You have shown us what "community" really means, and I can take that back to North Dakota with me knowing my family will continue to be well taken care of.
