The Minnesota Wild...

Are quite the organization!

My brother-in-law, Verd, was not only an incredible man, but he was extremely involved in youth hockey.

The Minnesota Wild caught wind of this, and have been INCREDIBLY generous to his family! In addition to offering their support in the immediate aftermath of Verd's accident, they recently contacted my SIL and offered something more:

Tickets in an "Executive Suite" to yesterday's game...for ALL of Verd's family, up to 50 people!

So, yesterday our family was able to all be together (most of us) and watch the Wild play the Lightening in the comfort of a suite.

And MAN was it sweet!! Except I forgot my camera. *insert "idiot" here*

(One of these things is not like the other...can you spot it?)

Good thing for my crappy iPhone camera!

To the Minnesota Wild:

On behalf of the Verd A. family, THANK YOU! Thank you for your generosity in a time of unbelievable grief and sadness. You provided us some much needed fun time and distraction, while still celebrating Verd!

We are one grateful family...
