We always thank God for all of you when we mention you constantly in our prayers. (1 Thessalonians 1:2)

We are very grateful to everyone for Sunday’s wonderful reception for Yvonne and me. You all were so kind, gracious, and generous. We appreciate all the different ways you showed your love for us—the music in worship with favorite hymns and the kids singing, the flowers, the color of the lovely decorations, the corsages, the delicious food, the photos, the generous gifts, the cards, the line of heartfelt goodbyes that lasted two hours, our favorite Irish blessing, and more. Many of you mentioned how God has used us to bless your lives. That is certainly how we feel about you. You have been such a blessing to us. We are humbled by your expressions of love. Thank you!

May God bless you in every way. You remain in our prayers.

Dr. Sam & Yvonne
