— “This was given to me for my first Christmas when I found myself being taken in by two of the most loving and caring people God ever put on this earth,” wrote Helen M. Gochnour Csikos of Johnstown. “I was in foster care and, at the age of 6, found myself at the home of Ruth and Ralph Gochnour. I was 7 in 1961 for my first Christmas with them. They gave me this cutout. As my Mom took it apart my Dad read the story, we put it all together and I have had it ever since and every year I put it up. I have had it with my children and now my grandchildren. Everyone who has seen this over the years has loved it and say they have never seen anything like it.”
