As I walk through the coming days, I know I have the support of each of
you. Never did I ever imagine the love, understanding, compassion,
friendship and truth that has been shown to our family. “Thank you” are
words that feel very inadequate to express what we feel in our hearts.
Please know that your prayers are so appreciated and each act of kindness will always be remembered.
With love, Norma Silvius & Family
Many, many thanks to my church family for the cards, phone calls, delicious food and above all, the many prayers after
my accident. I continue to heal slowly, so please keep me in your prayers.
In Christ, Betty Hosp
