Thank You
Dear Members and Friends of Christ Church,
     Thaddeus and I would like to thank you for all the support you gave us when Danny passed away. We were blessed with encouraging words, prayers, flowers, visits, cards, phone calls, and kind deeds. From helping with the service to putting food on the table, someone was always there to lend a hand. We will never know all the people who supported us, then and now, but we feel the strength, love, and peace that have come our way because of them.
     God bless!
