SPECIAL THANK YOU: “To My Church Family, There are no words to adequately express my (as well as my family) thanks to you for all the cards, phone calls, delicious food, and all the expressions of concern and prayers during my recent surgery and recovery.  All of these things helped so much with my healing and recovery.  God is good—all the time—and
