Magic Moments: The Harris Family

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – A Northwest Lincoln Family was shocked when they came outside to find gifts in their driveway.  The Harris family is the latest Magic Moment’s recipient.  Along with Union Bank, Channel 8 is so proud to help brighten the holiday spirit for several families in Lincoln.

Nathan Harris recently lost his partner Rachel of more than 14 years after she past away earlier this year from breast cancer.  It’s been so hard for him and his kids without her this year.

Nathan’s mom and sister nominated the family for this Magic Moment, and he was stunned when he walked out his front door.

He said, “It was just crazy, I was stunned, like holy cow.  So many caring people to give out to us is nice to see.”

Some of the gifts they received were family pictures with mom to hang on the walls, a freezer, as well as jerseys and tickets to the Salt Dogs and the Lincoln Stars.  Their favorite gift was a family trip to Colorado, the same place they last spent a vacation with Rachel before she passed.
