When Jenn‘s husband unexpectedly passed away last year, her family was thrown into turmoil. Her friends knew Jenn and her family’s first Christmas back in the home they shared with their dearly departed would be especially hard, so one of them – neighbor Stuart Edge – decided he would make it easier for them. With the help of his mom, his brother, some friends and some local volunteers, Stuart set out to give Jenn and her family a festive surprise they would never forget and one that would, hopefully, ease some of the pain they were feeling.
“This family is always giving back to us, as well as many others in the community, so we wanted to make sure their first Christmas back inside their home was a special one,” said Stuart. So, with the help of his family and friends, he set about giving something back to a grieving family who had given so much. While Jenn was away, they grabbed their shovels and got to work clearing the driveway, they enlisted the help of a local company to decorate the house both inside and out, and they even laid on a very special surprise to commemorate Jenn’s husband.
When Jenn and her family returned to their family home for the first Christmas since her husband passed away, they couldn’t believe their eyes. And neither will you when you see this heartwarming video. It’s pretty emotional stuff, so get those hankies ready! Christmas is a time for giving. Stuart and his friends and family took that idea and turned it up to eleven. Nice work, Stuart!
