“We know what the family is going through, so we wanted to just come out and say, you know, we are with you,” Mayor Ward said. “We are with you guys, and we will continue to be with you after this day is over, and after tomorrow’s over, and after the next day is over.”

After spending time with Jourdynn and her family, the group continued its drive-by Christmas parade through town – giving out a lot more presents to hundreds of kids.
