It is official. This morning the keys to a brand new home were presented to Craig and Pam Aikers. While Shawn was not present for today’s media event, he did tour this home with his parents last night, a tour that had them in grateful tears.
As a sideline note, the McBride Homes website has been inundated with messages of thanks and goodwill from thousands of folks across the country in the last week or so, especially. So much so that they have just instated a secured server login throughout their site. That means no one can access their comments page to leave notes. Something tells me McBride Homes has received America’s messages of thanks loud and clear for providing this new home to the Aikers family and for Shawn Hornbeck. To so many of you who used my link to their comments page and left a kind word, I offer my sincere and heartfelt thanks.
Our pals at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch have compiled a wonderful article, detailing the home and all its glory, and the real meaning perceived in this by Craig and Pam. Read to your heart’s content here:
I’ve always been a sucker for a happy ending. One day soon, I pray that is exactly what Shawn Hornbeck and his family realize and enjoy for the rest of their lives.
