    A true labor of love by Miles’ and Zane’s wonderful parents, Jason Lajeunesse and a community of folks that never stopped giving. God Bless every single person that contributed to this amazing display of love. Stephen and Michelle were bone-tired through the nearly year-long project. They will now get to enjoy it with their two beautiful sons. They, too, have been blessed.
