Thank You, Rev. Tom Hill
Rev. Tom Hill, you are a blessing to Wendell Christian Church. God sent you to us just when we needed you the most. You have changed many lives over the many years of your ministry. You have changed the world for the better. Thank you for making a difference. We will miss you and wish you a long, enjoyable retirement.
Message from Rev. Tom Hill
Dear Church Family Members:
Thank you so much for the wonderful send off my last Sunday. The plaque will always remind me of you. The Harley cake will certainly give me something to look forward to. It was very meaningful and special to me as I conclude this phase of my life’s journey.
To say I miss you is an understatement. You have become such an important part of my life over the last 18 years. We shared quite a bit during that time; good times, bad times, tough times and fun times. The important thing is, one, they were all special times and, two, we shared them together. Thank you for your support throughout the years, for remembering me at Christmas, birthdays and so many other special occasions. I still have the fishing rods you gave me and now I should have a little more time to enjoy them.
You have always been very dear to me and I count it a blessing that we spent 18 years of our lives together. I pray God’s blessings for each of you and for the church. I also thank God for the time we had together.
Love you, Rev. Tom
P.S. I will make this promise to you. Whenever I get my Harley I’ll ride it to church one Sunday to see you; maybe even rev up the engine a little. Who knows? I may even take you for a ride on the back, those of you who are daring enough!
