Thanks to all who remembered my birthday and my service to LCGS, especially Pastor Chet and Nancy.  Thanks for your prayers and best wishes. I miss being in the office but treasure my almost 24 years with all of  you.  There comes a time in everyone’s life when they must “move on” to other paths whatever they may be.  Thanks for the flowers and gift. I love you all. God Bless!   Sara Downs
