As this is my last Newsletter, I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me over these past 33 plus years. When I started in June 1986, I never thought I would be here over 33 years. This has been a wonderful job for me and I have enjoyed working with all of you. Your love and support has gotten me through the good and bad times in my personal life and you have always shown concern for me and my family. I want to say a special thank you to Shelley Wauters and Mary Schemmel for the beautiful Coffee Time held on Sunday, December 8th for me and for Sara Downs, Doris Lutyens and Craig Gesme. It was good to see so many people I usually don’t see as I always go to the 10:30 a.m. service. Thank you for all the cards and well wishes. This will be a big change for me and for my husband, Ron. This will also be a big change for Good Shepherd as I have been here so long and you have been accustomed to the way I do things. The next person will do this job different than I do so please accept that person as you did me. Thank you Pastor Travis for your blessing to officially end my ministry at Good Shepherd. It is hard to say “good bye” but it is time for me to go a different direction in my life. I love you all and will miss being in the office and seeing so many of you on a daily basis. Once again THANK YOU for letting me be a part of this special place.
