Thank You from Nancy Curtis
To All at Northminster Church,

Thank you all, for all your expressions of care for me during my illnesses and hospitalizations. You all show me God's love and caring through your acts of sending me cards, bringing me a great Easter basket and Lynda M. visiting me.
I really enjoyed the puzzle book that was in the basket (I have done all the puzzles).

All the prayers I have had are really appreciated. I am doing very well. Another couple months should really be key to a full recovery. Again "thank you", God bless all of you.

Love from,
Nancy Curtis
