Thank You from Barbara Jennings
I am thankful to my church family for all of the help you all have provided since having the procedure on both legs. Despite some struggle, I seem to be on the road to recovery and am finally beginning to heal! The prayers, flowers, visits, cards, and phone calls continue to brighten my day. The wonderful food you all have sent continues to nourish our bodies and allows me to take time to heal. I look forward to seeing you all back at church soon! Love, Barbara Jennings
