BLASDELL, N.Y. - While many of us prepare to spend the holiday weekend with our loved ones, a Blasdell family is feeling the void left by a father and husband taken from them far too soon.
The are also feeling love and generosity from a group of strangers who are a perfect example of why this is the City of Good Neighbors.
Last month, Kevin Weber, 44, lost a nearly two year battle with cancer, leaving behind his wife of 16 years, Missy, and six children.
While at the Weber home for some lab work, visiting nurse Jill Redman learned of the family's story and wanted to do something to brighten the family's Christmas.
Redman shared what had happened with her friends on Facebook, and before she knew it, she had collected money, gift cards, and other presents for the kids, ages three to 20.
