Thank You Notes

Dear Church Family,

Any ivy is an easy to maintain plant, very forgiving, and long-lived. I’m sure it has a lesson for me as a Christian: not fussy, not showy, forgiving, continually growing. Thank you for sending it to my Mother’s funeral. I will treasure it.

Janet Crossland

UCC Canyon,

Thank you for the quilt and happy wishes as we get closer to the wedding day!

Dillon Heiman and Alyssa Lang

Dear University church of Christ,

Thank you for the beautiful Bird Nest Fern with pink carnations for the visitation and funeral of Norma Jean Tomlinson Williams. We are grateful for all the prayers and delicious food provided during this difficult time. Our mother considered UCC as her childhood and young adult church family. The church helped to instill within her faith, values, beliefs and love, that all molded her into the Christian mother and lady she was.

In Christian Love,
The Norma Jean Tomlinson Williams Family
(Dale, Cherri, Mark, Briton, Adrian and Amanda)

Canyon Church Family,

Thank y’all so much for making us a quilt. That was so thoughtful and such a sweet gift. Thank you for thinking about us during this new chapter in our lives!

Morgan Donaway & Jayden Parker
