Lessley, how sad!! My kids happen to LOVE Chick fil A....so we'll have to drive out and get lunch or dinner. Matthew is going to an early dinner with his Dad, so I'll have to tell them to go there, too. Matthew's Dad lives right by there, too. I'm glad you told us about it. Stuff like that is so sad to read and hear about....especially when it's a child.

It's sad to hear about Trent and it's great that chick-fil-a is helping out. I know Troy, the operator of that chick-fil-a, and he's a great guy too. I hope they get a lot and can help out Trent and his family.
