Dear Church Family,
Thank you so much for the memorial offering to the church. I know Aunt Ester would appreciate your gift. It’s a great way to honor her memory. I would like to express a very special thank you to everyone who brightened her day. She always looked forward to the visits by Bro. Mike and Steve, Bette’s banana pudding, the gift bags from Karen and the kids, the cards from Becky and the meals from the church. I know we all miss her, but it is a comfort to know she is home. We’re looking forward to seeing her again. I can only imagine her rejoicing in heaven today!
God Bless,
Rick and Paula Dean
