Many Thanks to our Church Family

We want to express our sincere gratitude for the thoughtfulness of our church family. The flowers, plants, food, and many acts of kindness truly made this difficult time more bearable.

I know Cliff would appreciate your kind gestures. I know you all meant a great deal to him. Being surrounded by people like you was a large part of what is special about Winton Road First Church of God.

Thank you all so much for your kind words, your generous gifts, and most of all, for your friendship with Cliff. Knowing you will miss him too makes our burden a bit easier to bear.

Sincerely, Judy, Amber, Brian, Cody, Allison, Logan, Jenn, Eli & Owen

Honestly, I don't know what we would do without the generous people at Winton Rd First Church of God.  During my dad's illness and passing so many of you went above and beyond anything we could have asked or expected.  Thanks to all of you who visited - special thanks to Jerry Hayes for going up to Hospice and sitting with my dad every morning.  And special thanks to my Mom and Dad's "gang" of friends who showered us with food in the days before the funeral and to Lisa Morgan and the people of Winton Rd. who truly though of everything and worked endlessly preparing, serving, and cleaning up the meal after the funeral. 

Thanks to each of you who came to the funeral.  My family from out of town was blown away with the number of people who attended.  Know that we will remember and not forget your presence and kindness on our most difficult day.
