Pat Shinsky requests continued prayer for her sister, Jan Shepherd.

Thank You: From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank my wonderful Amazing Ladies for my thank-you luncheon! Thank you to Marian and Jim Dale, Jaclyn Gaw and the ladies in the kitchen for the decorations, the food, my big chocolate cake, my cards, flowers and goodie basket. I appreciate everyone who came, who brought food, and who wrote a sweet note in my big card. I was overwhelmed by the kindness, and am so proud of this group of Amazing Ladies. Thanks to Marian for becoming our next fearless leader, and I hope you are as blessed as I have been! In Christian love, Sue Chaffin

Thank you: JA Family for your support over the past few weeks. The words of comfort, sympathy cards and those that traveled to be with us during the memorial service of Courtney's father touched our hearts deeper than you may realize. Also the support from the church family while we opened the store a couple weeks ago was almost overwhelming. The love that has surrounded us from all of you the past few weeks truly has touched our hearts. Thank you JA Family for living out Romans 12:15 by rejoicing with those who rejoice and mourning with those who mourn! What a blessing it is to witness first hand the Kingdom of God on Earth through your love towards us and each other. Thank you and we love you! Courtney & Lindsey Norton

Thank You: To the Jefferson Ave Church of Christ., I wanted to take a moment and thank each of you for all of your prayers, and cards, and Christ-like love that you have shown me and my family. I had a kidney transplant on February 13th and am recovering well. I was taught as a youth that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass. I think prayer, a card, and kindness fall into that category. Thank you again for petitioning the Lord on my behalf. Miracles continue to happen everyday. Wayne Smith (father of Scouts Scott & Raymond Smith in Troop 196)
